Happy Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday!


After our wet Glacier Lagoon boat ride, our last stop of the day was at the Seljalandsfoss Waterfalls. YAY and thanks for the sunshine! Can you find the people walking on the trail that goes behind the waterfall? 




Hubby took the trail that went behind the waterfalls.  




While hubby was taking the waterfall trail that went behind the falls, I took shots of the waterfalls and the Northern Fulmars.  There were groups of these birds in different spots on the cliff around the waterfalls.



The Northern Fulmar, a gull-like seabird. They are neat looking birds with their yellow beak with odd looking nose tubes. 



A view of the sunset, looking toward to coast from the trail and waterfall parking lot. 


I was thankful the rain stopped! We were able to see a pretty sunset during our last stop of our tour. 


am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  1. Now there's a smart move, Eileen. Send the husband iff somewhere by himself so you can do a little birding! 😋

  6. Interesting bird...wouldn't you love to know the purpose of the nose being like that? Or whatever you want to call it.

    Love that sunset...and the falls.

  7. Beautiful sunset and I'll bet that trail was so cool (but...was it slippery at all being behind the Falls?).

  43. That's a great trail going behind the waterfall - I'd be thankful for all that water in the waterfall, everything is quite dried up here!
