Akureyki, Iceland

We had a day at sea yesterday and because we are so far north we have 24 hour daylight. While we slept we sailed into the Arctic Circle and round the north of Iceland, then south into the Eyjarfjordur, ending up at Akureyki.
The cloud was very low as we sailed down the fjord, but it cleared to reveal the tops of all of the hills, turning into a lovely afternoon.
Akureyki is not the most exciting place we have ever visited, but it has a very pretty Botanic Garden with lots of plants and flowers that grow in England. There is also a surprising art deco style church and a busy town centre - although that might be because it was full of passengers from our ship.
