I keep forgetting to mention that we have been joined on our Icelandic adventure by Steve's sister, Chris and her husband Fred. So there will be some stories about these two from Minnesota, I am sure!
And I know this is a boring subject, but just let me say Iceland has Sheep..a LOT of sheep. They are everywhere, even in the middle of the road. There are no preditors here,except the restaurants, and lamb is on EVERY menu. They aren't in herds, there are no fences and they are just all over the place...on the lava rocks,the fields,roads, hill and dale and enjoy a fairly peaceful,life until the fall round up, and then....well, you know...lamb chops! The reason I even mentioned this is yesterday we were headed down a dirt road to see some site and this crazy sheep and her babies decided to run down the road in front of us...for about a mile! They would not scurry over to the side or the fields. Sheep are dumb.
Well, the fellow informed us that he was very sorry they didn't actually sell the shark meat there but they did sell it at the airport in the "Made in Iceland" shop. Yeah...right.
