After breakfast we went on a lazy visit to Akureyri. We walked a bit around the
city and my wife and son went to the Akureyri Swimming Pool. I walked around
town a bit. I soon noticed a big antenna setup on a house suggesting I found
the home of a radio amateur. I later confirmed this.
Nice design for an electricity substation in Akureyri
It was a nice and sunny day so walking around Akureyri was really nice. I
walked a bit in the direction of the mountains and later along the harbour. It
was a bit too early in the season for lots of activity on the water. The flags
about the winter sport area in Akureyri were still up. When we asked about it
the tourist information told us the wintersport resort had just closed the
slopes one week earlier. Even with the sun and the nice temperatures we could
see lots of snow on the higher mountains. The end of the wintersport season
was also visible in another way: we saw quite a number of snowmobiles being
moved on trailers.
Evening over the bay at Akureyri
In the afternoon we picked up some groceries at a supermarket in Akureyri
and went back to the apartment at the other side of the bay and made and
had dinner in the apartment and enjoyed an evening with great views.
