The Rocks of Grindavík.

Man (my MAN truck/campervan) is now parked up 749 km from Seyðisfjörður in the town campsite (N63.84344 W22.42291) of the fishing port of Grindavík, (rightly famous for its Saltfish Museum).

But perhaps the town should become famous for its brightly coloured volcanic rocks, used as garden ornaments.

On a less frivolous note, orange is probably the best colour for the more industrial garden decoration.

The real reason I am in Grindavík, without visiting any of the delights between here and Seyðisfjörður, is the nearby Keflavík International Airport where Michele will arrive in a few hours.

For those interested in such things diesel in Iceland (July 2009) is selling at 177.60 Icelandic Króna (£0.88 UKP or €1.02 Euro) per litre. Most remote fuel stations are unmaned and only accept credit cards. It is a good idea to make sure your card is accepted whilst you have plenty of fuel.
