AND… A little before dinner we were visited by a pod of orcas (killer whales)! Jay’s photos are in a format that I can’t use until we get home, so here are some super shots by Richard, one of the other guests:

Is this a stave church? There are many stave churches in Norway. Same construction as viking ship. Just curious
I believe so. This was the first (oldest) wooden church in all of Iceland. On the cruise, we also saw a smaller stave church — both were Norwegian in flavor.
Oops! I misread which post you were commenting on… Yes, the church on day 6 of the CRUISE was definitely a Norwegian stave church. I thought you were referring to the newest post from day 6 of the ROAD TRIP. The latter (in Akureyi) is the oldest wooden church in Iceland and I believe it may also be a stave church.
