It’s been a busy final week in Iceland. We had an open studio day at Listhus to celebrate the June residency which went really well. I just left my studio as it was with everything I had made in the last month on the walls.
I also went on a horse trek through a valley in the mountains near Dalvik. The valley was also a bird reserve and it was full of geese, ducks, Arctic terns, snipe and lots of others. From horse back you get a different view of the landscape. I could see a lot more of the marshy valley floor and I was even able to spot some nests full of eggs. The ride was fantastic and my horse was called Bjork!
I did a final hike along the fjord in Olafsfjordur with Susan and Claudette from Listhus. We followed the cliff trail out of the fjord around the coast into the next valley. The night of the cliffs rising above us was really unusual for Iceland. The bare rock towers in the mountains in the next valley reminded me of black meringues.
