On June 2nd, I join a little road trip to Sauðárkrókur with Sabrina, Dale, Sylvie, and Emilie to return a rented car.

Since there are only two buses per day to bring us back to Blönduós, we took the opportunity to spend a couple of hours at the Black Beach while waiting for the next bus.

On the way, we saw a monument on the right side of the road and decided to stop. It was an observation point to look at the landscape, and beyond the sea.

In this picture, we look like a boy band who is about to drop a new album. In this picture taken by Sabrina, from left to right: Dale, me, Emilie, and Sylvie.

The wind was very intense and threatening our balance, way more than the doors of the Mont-Royal metro station (if you know, you know).

We also made a little detour when we saw these houses. These are the Glaumbær Farm & Museum. We spent half an hour enjoying the view of the Glaumbær Old Turf Farm. The first farmhouse on the hill at Glaumbær was built around 900 AD with turf, stones, and timber. The buildings have the same form as in the 18th and 19th century..

Back in the car, we drove for another 15 minutes and arrived at the Black Beach of Sauðárkrókur, black sand beyond the horizon.

I collected samples to examine them with my microscope for future photo and video projects.

Back to my bedroom, in the night that never comes, with a precious view on the water, I spent lovely hours looking at this black sand that reveals so many colors under the microscope.
