Today we had to do some shopping again, the supermarket was well stocked.

In all the travel guides the West Fjords are mentioned because of beauty and tranquillity. This is absolutely true.
We had one handicap, I had arranged to go diving again and I needed to keep to our travel scheme. Luckily in the beginning of July the sun, in northern Iceland, is up nearly 24/7.
We made several stops on the way; we saw many seals resting close to the road. But lazy as we are, no walks. At Súðavík we visited the Arctic fox centre, this was an interesting exhibition, everyone gets a personal guide and she was well informed.
There were two live arctic foxes in a pen. We were told: due to Icelandic law an animal that has been captured may not be released back in nature.
We arrived at the camping in Ísafjörður in time to have drinks in the evening sunshine.
