Flying higher than a kite...

Well yes I was higher than a kite, but not really that high.

Dr. Eyjog was going flying this weekend, so I went with him. :) It was overcast to the south, so we flew north west for about a hour and a half.

This is a picture of work, form a different point of view :P Kind of like this view of work a posed from the inside.

We flew north from Reykjavik up along the Fjord that the allies used to park convoys in during WWII.

From there we flew north into the highlands and around some mountains, the cloud cover was at just the right level that you could not see the glaciers. Well you could see them but it was white ice with white clouds above them, so couldn't really see them.

Then on the way back we followed a glacier fed river and a fresh water river. Where they both enter the ocean it is a interesting mix of silt filled water, fresh water, and salt water.
Then it was back to Reykjavik.

On the way back we flew past some land makes and places of interest. The first was the swiming pool that my parents and I went to when they visited.
On the way into to land we passed the Perlan.

You can see the runway that we landed at on the far left of the picture.

A visit from the past.

We have a visitor from the past here in Iceland.
Sailing ship
A Russian sailing ship has come to port. It was built in 1926 by Germany and then handed over to Russia as war reparations.


Anyway it is kind of neat to see this old lady still sailing.
