Photo of the Week--4/27/09

This is not Antarctica ... I couldn't resist a double shot from our trip to Iceland in summer 2002. This is actually Jokulsarlon, a glacier lagoon near the southeast coast of the island. The lagoon is only liquid during the summer; in wintertime it freezes over, impeding the progress of the icebergs to the ocean. If you saw Die Another Day, the last James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan which came out in 2002, then you saw Jokulsarlon in its frozen state (with the over-the-top addition of a cliff-high glacier; in reality Jokulsarlon is nearly at sea level, within sight of the sea). We toured the lake via amphibious vehicle, former U.S. Army issue, which was a fun sight in itself. Iceland was one of my favorite trips from our time in Europe ... and, unfortunately, the last.

  1. For more trips, maybe TSU will get transferred to the home office when Boy is finished with high school. Ever think of that?
