    Dinner and Church.

    October 1 in Iceland

    When out to dinner at Skalholt, a community initially established in the 11th century. Skalholt was one of the most important places in Iceland for 8 centuries. Now just very small religious center for the Church of Iceland. The current “cathedral” was built in 1950’s but there is a priest buried in the basement from the 15th century. They are doing a lot of archaeological studies in the area. Next to the beautiful church there are dormitories, cottages and the wonderful restaurant we ate at. We were the only dinners for most of the time. Food was great, but most interesting to Les was a very old looking building next to the church. Unfortunately, the light was already gone, so we will have to come back to the photograph it in the next few days.Read more

    Back to the Cathedral

    October 2 in Iceland

    Les really liked the old replica of traditional building next to the Cathedral/and where we ate dinner last night. So with the sun still shining when we went back. Les was so disappointed, the Church shaded the old building he came back to shoot. Oh well, the light is still better than last evening.
    While Les shot the building I looked around the Church and area.
