Last Stop - The Blue Lagoon

I had written that our last stop before returning home would be Reykjavik, Iceland, but we are actually in Grendavik, home of the geothermal spa known as the Blue Lagoon.

I'm not going to explain here how it works, mostly because I don't really know myself. You can read about it on their website if you wish. All I know is that the water is blue and anywhere from warm to hot, depending on where you're standing. It's rich with unique minerals, and silica, with which you can give youself a mud treatment.

It is no surprise that the readers of “Conde Nast Traveller” voted Blue Lagoon as the best medical spa worldwide. For five consecutive years Blue Lagoon has been awarded the Blue Flag environmental recognition granted to natural beaches and marinas.
We spent a few hours there last evening amidst a spectacular show of sun and clouds as day turned to night. Afterwards, we felt serene and relaxed.....and we will need every bit of that today in preparation for our return to our real world. There, we will be faced with the usual challenges of everyday life, but infused with a new spirit and clamor for change which started downtown just around the corner where I work, and which has reverberated to all the places that we've been, even in this desolate stretch of land where we are now. Speak to you next time from home.
