An exquisite day

Fullkominn dagur

Sunrise over the swimming pool in Reykjanes.

Sólarupprás yfir sundlauginni á Reykjanesi.

A small sailing boat anchored near our accommodation for the evening.

Lítil seglskúta sem varpaði akkerum nálægt gististað okkar.

Here was our greeting crew at the start.

Mótttökunefndin.

Natabara got started. We were all eager to run as it was such a beautiful day.

Natabara hóf hlaupin. Allir voru æstir í að hlaupa, því dagurinn var svo fagur.

Suren was next out.

Suren var næstur.

Salil was sure to capture it all on video.

Salil sá um að festa allt á filmu.

Pierre got his start.

Pierre lagði í hann.

Salil was entranced by the beauty.

Salil var uppnuminn af fegurðinni.

The village of Súðavík.

Súðavík.

Meanwhile the women's team and a couple of sheep were also enjoying the great weather.

Á meðan á þessu stóð, var kvennaliðið að njóta veðursins ásamt rollunum.

Zuzka makes some new friends.

Zuzka eignast nýja vini.

Ashadeep making the most of the warm weather.

Ashadeep nýtir sér hlýjuna.

A few of the local kids came out to greet us.

Á Súðavík komu nokkrir krakkar til að hlaupa með okkur.

We had a relay race with the kids.

Við kepptum í boðhlaupi gegn krökkunum.

And got soundly beaten.

Og töpuðum sannfærandi.

The victorious team - you can see they mean business.

Sigurvegararnir - þau taka þetta alvarlega.

Suren runs through an arch.

Gömul göng.

Salil presents Suren with an Icelandic delicay - a Prince Polo chocolate covered wafer bar.

Salil gefur Suren Prince Polo.

We arrived in Bolungarvík for a ceremony organized in the morning.

Við komum til Bolungarvík síðla dags.

We visited the Peace Tree planted almost exactly 2 years ago.

Og komum að friðartrénu sem hafði verið plantað fyrir 2 árum.

Bolungarvík was our last event for the day so we got a little help to extinguish the torch.

Bolungarvík var síðasti áfangastaður dagsins og krakkarnir hjálpuðu okkur að slökkva á kyndlinum.
