Thirsty Thursday: Jokulsarlon

Rambler: Beth

Drink at Hand: St. George Terroir Gin and Tonic

Hey hey hey...I'm finally getting around to posting a Thirsty Thursday. I definitely poured myself a yummy drink tonight. The St. George Terroir gin is one of my favorite. 

But, I digress, you're here for a photo or two. Tonight I'll just share one. Back in May Terry and I took our dream vacation to Iceland. We spent the better part of two weeks cruising around the country in a Dodge Durango in which the back had been converted to a nice sleeping space. We drove where we wanted, took photos, and parked wherever we wanted each night to sleep. The weather wasn't ideal (rainy and windy), but that country is so beautiful, we didn't care. 

I had two things I wanted to see in Iceland. One was Seljalandsfoss, the waterfall you can walk behind. The other was Jokulsarlon, the black sand beach where huge chunks of ice from a nearby glacial lagoon wash ashore. We found both. And they were awesome. 

Here's a photo from our second stop at Jokulsarlon. We camped on this beach, so all I had to do was stumble out of the Durango and into the windy morning light. Interesting Iceland trivia: sunrise in Iceland in May is at about 3:00 am. No joke. Luckily I like early mornings, and this is what I came away with...

I'm already plotting our return to Iceland. It was incredible. In the mean time, I have plenty more photos to help me relive our vacation.
