Puffins! (by Anna)

by on August 9, 2013

Yesterday, we saw puffins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were little and adorable and were flying in the wind on the cliff where they lived above the beach.

Then we climbed a glacier and froze while doing it.

Before that, we climbed behind a waterfall and had a lot of fun doing it.

We learned two days ago that in Icelandic legends, trolls come out at night, and will eat you alive if you are out after dark. Elves live in the boulders, and will attack you if you come out after dark, and Fairies live in the caves to attack you if you climb the cliffs. These stories were made to keep people on the paths, off the cliffs, and home by night in ancient times.

    Actually, trolls are active on the internet 24/7. All you need to do is feed them a blog and we appear!
