Nevertheless, we were able to eat some breakfast and were very kindly given the option of an early check-in, which, if you've ever flown internationally, you will understand why we tripped over ourselves agreeing to the extra early check-in charge.
We took a short walk around a volcanic rock-lined pier, but it was a bit chilly, so we came back to the hotel to find our room ready. After a short nap and a chance to look at some of our guidebooks again, we decided to take a short drive around the Reykjanes Peninsula, which was lovely - desolate and windy. And quiet - barely a seagull calling.
It was at this point we came across a lighthouse on Gardskagi, where we stopped for dinner, before heading back to the hotel.
