What a day - after a good night's sleep in Palli and Helga's cabin we decided to do the mammoth drive to Jökulsárlón.
Up and out by 8am we arrived around 12:30 - after a short pit stop half way. I'd forgotten how dull some of the drive is but it is well worth it once you get there.
We didn't have time to stop on the journey, there or back, at any of the other sights en-route. We wanted to get back for dinner at the cabin!
We finally arrived back at around 7:30pm - with the northern lights guiding our way for the final hour.
The glacier lake was stunning - but once again our favourite was the ice-covered beach. If it wasn't so cold I could have stayed much longer.
Talking of cold - today's temperatures ranged from -9 to 16 degrees. The 16 degrees was obviously some weird blip on the car's thermometer. There is no way it was that warm anywhere outside the car today.
The lights are still on - but not quite bright enough at the moment for photos. We'll be keeping a look out for them as long as we can keep our eyes open!
Stu's bum actually got stuck to that ice.
