Following the debacle on the beach, we continued on our way around Reykjanesbaer. It was much more uneventful, but still quite pretty. Here we go!
Our next stop was the Blue Lagoon, which we nearly missed because a couple of roads leading to it were closed for a bike tour. Fortunately, we managed to wrangle our way in. This is a funny place because there is a tourist temple built in the middle, and it's kind of fortified and cordoned off. You pay a whole lot to get in and lay yourself down in warm pools of blue, geothermal power plant runoff. We didn't do this, instead we walked around the public paths around the place where there were cool or extremely hot pools of the mineral-rich blue water.
