On the third day of our Icelandic adventure, we returned to Jökulsárlón glacial lake in order to see it in the bright sunlight.
With brighter light, the blue color of the iceberg glaciers is even more stunning.
With global warming, the start of the glaciers can be seen receding more and more every year.
After our second visit to the lake, we began our journey back to Reykjavik, which was about a five hour drive. The scenery is breathtaking. There were plenty of places to pull of the road for pictures.
Here is another place we had to circle back for so I could take a picture!
It wouldn’t be a day in Iceland without a waterfall!
After checking into our Reykjavik hotel (The Swan House, which I very much recommend. Nice, clean spacious rooms), we explored the city. My favorite stop was the Lebowski Bar, themed after the Cohen Brothers movie. Packed with American kitsch decor and bowling memorabilia, they have an extensive menu of White Russians (aka Caucasians). I had one topped with Cocopuff cereal! If you are a fan of the movie, you have to make a stop at the Lebowski bar.
