West Iceland: the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

The next morning,¬†Borghildur was alive and well and in her own home, and she sent us to a bakery for bread and pastries. We had a satisfying breakfast of cheese, fruit, tomatoes, baked goods and coffee (B. is a textile artist who collects handmade mugs and sometimes designs fabric inspired by the mugs. We got to choose our mugs from her personal exhibit.)¬†Then, on B.’s recommendation, Jamie and I headed to the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
