It was a quiet day. We need that sometimes to re-group and get ready for what’s next. I braced myself against the wind and headed off to the post office. My grandson Brandon will graduate in June from St. Ignatius high school in San Francisco, and I had to get my letter in the mail and the gift so he would get it on time. But I was too early by about fifteen minutes for the post office, so I went into the Grill and had a yogurt drink. Yogurt is popular in Iceland and it is good. I spoke for awhile with Hulda, the young lady who will soon head off to college herself.
Then I got to the post office but I was still early, so I waited inside the space between the automatic door and the main door, and entertained myself by stepping on the spot that would open and closed the automatic door.
Childish, huh? I know, but what was I to do?
So then I took photos of the harbor, police department, Hulda at the grill, the post office and another aluminum sided house. I also got one of the grocery store but that one will have to wait.
I was shivering and the camera shook too much for a decent photo. But I did got into the grocery store and purchased a darning needle and black thread to hem my pants that are way too long. I couldn’t find a regular needle so went with the darning kind, and by the way, if you’re eyesight isn’t too good, those needles are easier to thread.
Later in the day, I took another walk the opposite way and heard the sounds of the Loa birds calling to each other.
They almost sound like a cell phone.
