waters of life

At Hotel Husafell, breakfast and dinner are both served in this gorgeous dining room, filled with windows and views.

There are baristas to make me a cappuccino if I like. For me it’s the new beginning to the day.

The view from the table we usually choose, looks across a meadow-field. We can clearly see a small church.

After breakfast we drove across the field to that church.

In Ezekiel 36:26 we hear, “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you.”

Off to the left of the altar is a baptismal font. New life in Christ, echoing the Ezekiel scripture.

We returned to Hraunfossar Waterfall for a longer linger.

Never have I ever. The falls beauty has to be seen to realize how many individual cascades pour down to make the whole. Clear, cold springs of subterranean water seep through the lava and run as tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River.

We reluctantly moved on down the road. to Krauma Baths. Yesterday we had their best-ever soup. Today we had a soak before we once again enjoyed best ever soup.

Below the baths is a small power plant which is manufactured by the French company Enogia. The geothermal baths on site use liquids from the most powerful hot spring in Europe, Deildartunguhver. The heat in the geothermal fluid produces sufficient energy to supply Krauma with electricity as well as helping to cool the geothermal fluid before it goes into the baths, which saves the use of cold water.

The baths experience was tranquil. Various pools of varying temperatures were clustered. There were two rooms to relax. One was warmed by a wood stove, the other by infrared light. Such an overall soothing time.

Followed by another serving of best ever soup and bread.

After returning to the hotel, local water to quench thirst after a day of waters of life.
