Land of ice, hot water & hopefully whales

In search of more cetaceans not too far from home, here I am on a short break to Iceland to look for the largest animal ever to have inhabited the planet - the blue whale.
On arrival at Keflavík airport today, we headed straight for the famous Blue Lagoon. It looks somewhat bleak and volcanic, and the air temperatures are cold even in July, but the water is extremely hot! Then off to our hotel at Ólafsvík on the Snæfellsnes Peninsular.
