The Bigger Picture
I went up to the north last weekend for a gathering-of-the-clan-thing. In this case it was the descendants of my fathers grandmother and grandfather on his mother's side that gathered at the old farm, Svanshóll (Swanhill) in Bjarnarfjörður (Bearfjord). The last time we were there was in 2006 when my father came with us to celebrate his fathers centenary. Later that year my father passed away, so that trip was very special.
I have been wanting to come back, so this opportunity was welcome. I wanted to go to spend some time in the fantastic landscape, look for lichens which I knew are abundant in that area and even gather some. And I did.
