Djupivogur, Iceland

This is a very small hamlet of some 250 people which is interesting for its many antique homes and for its wildlife both onshore and on the nearby Papey Island, named for some Irish monks, the Papers, who were said to have inhabited it.  Unfortunately the winds were too strong for us to tender ashore so we had to settle for a distant view.  The Captain did wait for awhile to see if conditions would improve but they did not.  We then set of for a couple of hours of scenic cruising before setting off to our next port of call, Molde, Norway, which is a replacement for one of the previous missed ports.  I did get some photos with my telephoto lens so I will show you what I saw of Djupivogur the coastline and some nearby fishing villages.
