|Yacht "Vive la vie"|
One day there is a spectacular private yacht anchored in the harbor and the locals have gathered to look and gossip. After checking the internet, I find it’s owned by the owner of Ypsomed. It only stays a single day.
One evening I take a closer look at the new avalanche wall being built in Ísafjörður. On weekdays when they are working, it’s impossible to get close to it. But on a Sunday it’s possible to have a look.
What an amazing construction! But it’s also creating a huge scar in the landscape. Once it’s finished, it will be covered with grass and camouflaged so that you’ll hardly see it from the front. There will probably be a nice walking path on top of it and behind it. It’s definitely a necessary addition to this town. I always joke and say, if you are a professional avalanche wall builder living in the Westfjords, you’ll never be unemployed. These things take years to build and there are always more needed.
