Aurora blew us away this evening! A full on display of colour and light for a full hour. 

The lights started while we were still on the highway. We pulled over at the first opportunity for a short preview before carrying on the 15 more minutes to our destination. Our haunted house at Vatnsleysuströnd was deserted as ever… though there were a few spooky changes I might tell you about in a different tale.

The forecasts had all been clear that this was going to be a stunning sighting and boy oh boy were they right!
