outdoor life

The weather is stable.
It is raining most of the time.

Commercial posters and a sculpture in the central part of the city emphasise the mood.

But my Icelandic host says that "bad weather" only is a state of the mind.

So I started the day in the icelandic way - a visit to the local bath.
Some laps in the 50 m pool, a couple rides in the water slide, and then a rest in heitir pottar - one warmer than the other. And everything outdoor in the chilly (ca 10ºC) weather - but warm water.
Most of the people there were retired - I was probably to late to see someone at my own age. And I think I was the only non-local.

Splendid outdoor life.
