Brunch at the harbor.

The restaurant is called Sea Baron and it sells fresh fish on skewers. You tell them which kinds you want out of the case and they grill it up for you. They also have delicious lobster soup and lots of bread and butter.

From top to bottom here: char, minke whale, and halibut.

We took the ferry (at the other end of town) to a nearby island, Videy.

It seems like they have tried to preserve the island as much as they could and it's mostly just grassy hills and birds. I think it's a place to have picnics and enjoy being outside.

We learned how to take the bus!

Also, we had this fancy dinner at a place called Tapas barinn. We decided to have the Icelandic dishes which included:

-a shot of the infamous Icelandic spirit Brennívín

-Smoked puffin with blueberry “brennivín” sauce

-Icelandic sea-trout with peppers-salsa

-Lobster tails baked in garlic

-Pan-fried blue ling with lobster sauce

-Grilled Icelandic lamb Samfaina

-Minke whale with cranberry and Malt sauce

-White chocolate "Skyr" mousse with passion fruit coulis

The waitress said all that was for one person, but we split the orders between two people (3 orders for 6 people) and it was the perfect amount of food (but not enough shots!).

Whoops, we demolished this one before we remembered to take a picture! It was the blue ling. That lobster sauce was real good. :-P
