terminal and we ventured into Reykjavik for an early morning walk. It was cool

We were greeted at the ferry terminal by Icelandic friends whom Mr. Wohlmuth had meet during his first Iceland experience in 1998. There was a car, with a trailer attached, that carried our entire luggage to the hotel where we were staying.The entire group was tired and we rested for the adventurous next day.
