|Grundafjordur Harbour and Polar Cirkel Boat|
The sky was completely overcast throughout the morning but as we approached Grundafjordur the clouds began to break up and the sun poked through holes in the clouds more and more frequently. Our local guides informed us that it had been raining in Iceland pretty much steadily for the last two weeks. The sunshine was a welcome relief.

Before we began our return to the harbour in Stykkisholmur, we stopped to pick up the small trawling net we had been dragging. The crew poured the contents onto a sizeable table at the stern of the ship. There was a large variety of small animals collected but the crew quickly busied themselves shucking scallops and preparing sea urchins and then dumped the remainder over the side. There was enough for everyone to sample some Icelandic Sushi. There was even ginger, wasabi, soy sauce and chop sticks available.
The last motor coach returned to the ship at 20:10 which was a trifle late. However dinner was still being served and the Captain's Farewell Cocktail was postponed until 21:30.
