Another very present element is water—- rivers, geysers, waterfalls, sea…
Our new friends, co-travelers in the group, were having a lot of fun with their drone. (So did we.)
The bubbling to the right of the rock in the middle is a small geyser, a hot spring that enabled the bread to be baked.
Waiting for the geyser to spout.
This is a video taken by our friends. I had trouble with our camera’s batteries.
There was steam escaping from many places at the site of this magnificent geyser which shoots up about every 5 minutes.
I went up above the falls to get this shot showing the depth of the fault.
We were warned not to turn our back to the sea.
The last day we visited the Blue Lagoon spa and bathed in its warm, silica-rich water. They use water from hot springs to heat their houses. After they have taken some of the heat, there remains mineral-rich water which would stop up the pipes so they put it in this lagoon, mixed with some sea water. It was 38°C. I didn’t think I would like it but it was wonderful. It is beneficial for skin and joints. I wouldn’t mind jetting over there regularly. 🙂
