Wednesday 15 of June – Skogarnes >> Trödum
We had the honour of having Traustur guing us on the right track. It was quite tricky as it could be rather deep sea on some places. When we had finally reached the BIG beach he rode back again.

And finally we have reach the perfect day. The beaches - white like in any warm tropic country. It was totally amazing to ride on this fantastic sand.

And look at this view, with the poweful Snaefellsness jökul
- can you come closer to heaven?

Our trip has come to an end. Thursday 16 of june we brought the horses back
on this beach up to the summer house.

17th of June - the Icelandic Independence Day. Iceland was under Danish flag
for many years. This day 1944 the country became indepentent and all icelanders
is celebrating this big day.

Saturday and back home again. The Summer temperature is still warm so we
could have our breakfast outside.

Anna Björk enjoys her breakfast.

A great trip but still nice to be back home...
