Day 8 Sunday 26th June 2016 Isafjordur
There was no sunset today as we had daylight for the whole night.This was our view as we sailed into the fjord.
After breakfast in the main dining room we were able to catch an early tender to the port.
We walked along Pollgata along the side of the head of the fjord.
As we walked down Hafnarstaeti we noticed that a cafe/bakery was open. It was time for coffee and cake at Kaffihus Bakarans.
Further down the road there was a small square and another bakery had two old vehicles on display. By now passengers from all of the ships were in town, swelling the population by thousands – despite all the rain.
Along the same street was a white painted walkway from the street that had its walls and ceilings decorated.
Along one side of the square were painted bollards, here’s my favourite.
As the rain started again we ducked into the Husid cafe-restaurant-bar for some local Icelandic beers and a brief connection to the Internet.
The restaurant/bar had an interesting sign over the loos.
The rain had really started so we joined the long queue waiting for a tender. Back on board we went to the Glasshouse for a late lunch of cod and chips.
The tenders stopped late afternoon and the ship left its anchorage as the rain fell even more and the clouds came lower and lower around the fjord. Holland America’s Rotterdam was docked and Voyager was like Azura anchored and using its tenders.
I had the P&O mixed grill for dinner with tomato soup as a starter. Here’s the sea after 11 pm after leaving Isafjordur.
The P&O concierge rate for postcards was £1.85 leaving at 2pm.
