January 28, 2020 — Diamond Beach, South Coast, Iceland
About a half a mile from where the photo in the last post was taken, the lagoon empties into the North Atlantic. Miniature bergy-bits flow out and then are washed back ashore by the tide and the surf. There they sit, shining on the beach awaiting their inevitable trip back into the sea. They look like diamonds. This one seems to be sniffing the air, contemplating its fate.
(Just so you know, during the trip there was the constant subtext of checking the Aurora app on our phones and the Icelandic weather site in the web, hoping for a Kp index of at least three and a relatively cloudless night. So far, no joy.)
