Today we had a challenging day as some leftovers from the previous storm were still whipping Faxafloi. Nonetheless, fearless and with a great spirit in our minds we sailed out to discover the wildlife around us. Some dolphins and harbour porpoises were spotted during the tours but the starts of the day were eider ducks. Thousands of them were gathering in between the islands in front of Reykjavik and they flew over us in a delightful show.
