Last night at around midnight there was an amazing display of northern lights. I didn’t spend a lot of time taking pictures, just snapped a couple and admired them for a few minutes, but the alarm clock at 5:30 am is relentless and I need to get to sleep.
It’s foggy in the morning when I take a nice long walk on the beach, examining stones. This beach doesn’t have a lot of shells, except a few molluscs, but the stones and jellyfish and other things washed ashore can be quite interesting.
Later the sun comes out, warming everything up so I bike into Tungudalur and just sit on the dry deck of the campsite and bask in the sun, with my ever-present thermos and snack.
