Blue Lagoon

On our last day in Iceland, we went to the Blue Lagoon on the way to the airport. It is one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. Also not bad on a layover, since it's 20 minutes from the airport and they have busses coming and going.
It is geothermally heated seawater and also has silica and algae in it. It was very nice to soak in, especially when it was windy and rainy.
We swam all around in that lake/pool. They give in-water massages in one section, and there are big wooden bins you can help yourself to scoops of silica-algae masque.
There. Don't we look reinvigorated?
There is the swim-up bar in the middle.
This is the naturally occurring stuff right outside the spa.
And a close up of the lava rock and the minerals and water. It was pretty dramatic.
We made a two minute stop on the way to the airport to take a picture of this typical farm with the dikes and sod roof.
Rob with his boiled brown bread and salmon -- two of the things he loved best about the trip. If he could have gotten skyr through security, he would have been holding that too!
And goodbye to Iceland. I hope we'll come again!
