Snæfellsnes Pt. 6: Up Close at the Cliffs’ Edge

Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland (To see the rest of my posts from this weekend adventure Snæfellsnes, click here) in After eating lunch by the lighthouse, we walked along the cliff edges and peered over to get a better look at the swirls of bright blue water and flocks of sea birds perched on nooks and crannies along the cliff wall. Soon, we saw a large flock of birds circling one spot on the ocean in the distance. After looking closely for a few minutes, we realized that they were following a pod of Killer Whales who were feeding in the area. For the next half an hour, we sat and watched as the Orcas slowly moved close enough that we could see their huge black dorsal fins cresting the waves. It was surreal.
