Today was a short day, we planned only to ride 150km. There we booked an accommodation and would have another try to get some good pictures of the puffins. The sun was shining and the temperature was warm (for iceland).

After we arrived in our accommodation, we waited before we set off to the puffin cliff. We read that the puffins are more active in the morning or at night. The view from this vista point was marvellous.

When we went to the cliff, we saw the puffins. A bit far away, so I was happy to have the new camera with better zoom. And here they are. It was not possible to get closer, but this was much better than the pictures on the whale & puffin watching tour.

After we finished taking pictures, I noticed that I was a bit short on Petrol. So we went to the next village to fill up my bike again. From the petrol station we had a great view up a small mountain. The moon was just rising and the clouds just opened up, so I took some nice pictures from the church and field.

We were back in accommodation around 24:00. We really have no good feeling for the time when it doesn’t get dark. Tomorrow we will be a bit of millage, there is not too much to see in the south easter part of Iceland, I thought.
