Backpacking sometimes turns into an obligation, a need to travel on to the next site because it's on the route you selected.
After 2 days in the gloomy (but beautiful) Hornvík to the east, we decide to stay put and enjoy our spot in Hlöðuvík for a day. We eat when we're hungry, sleep when we're tired, and read books while we're awake.
We haven't lost sight of the sun for well over 30 hours. Not to clouds, sunsets, or landscape obstructions.
Good thing we packed sunscreen.
