How many hours can you spend on the beach? I’ve certainly had my fill today, watching the capelin stay away. Of course, like everybody else, I was hoping they would roll while I was there. Also I was hoping to see whales, but I only saw one Humpback, and one Humpback is almost no whale at all, so that one doesn’t count.

Anyway, here’s a few pictures from today:

In all the commotion, a duck landed on the beach. Nobody took notice of it so it flapped its wings to get some attention:

Nobody wanted to wait for the capelin to roll, so people ventured into the water to get their fill:
