Iceland : fjords, fishermen, waterfalls

En français
In the morning, we decided to go to the swimming-pool.
That's always a good idea when you are in Iceland and I highly recommend it.
Going out of Höfn we took a tunnel during 1300m under a mountain that different from what we have seen so far.
We then drived along the fjords to reach Djúpivogur. It's a small village where we took a break before continuing our road to Stöðvarfjörður and then the "Iceland fishermen" harbour Fáskrúðsfjörður where we visited the museum about the French fishermen who were coming to fish in Iceland from Brittany.
That's part of my own history as I'm from Brittany.

Not to far from Hengifoss we meet some reindeer. Sebastien didn't notice them but I'm really good with that sort of things. I'll tell you about the seals latter on.
The first waterfall is called Litlanesfoss, we can see Basalt columns around it that remind of Giant causeway.
We then go to see a strange house called Skriðuklaustrur with grass on the roof. It is closed because it's late.
We then go back to Egilsstaðir for the night.
