It poured down as we drove along Strandir from Heydalur to Krossneslaug swimming pool. We realized we were not going to sleep in our small tent as we had planned on a campsite close to the pool and the few guesthouses we passed on our way were booked for the night. We all really wanted to visit Krossneslaug so there was never really a question of changing our plan. We arrived around 10pm and stayed in the green pool for two hours. One local that visits regularily in the evenings and a couple of tourists came and went as we enjoyed the serenity. The only sound we heard in this isolated place was the sound of the surf. We didn’t regret our decision one minute. Not even when we were driving back the four hour drive to my aunt were we would overnight.
