Sheep are everywhere in Iceland. They graze with no fences all over the countryside, so I was able to hang out with lots of sheep on all our hikes and travels. The sheep provide Icelanders with both meat and wool so they are an integral part of their culture.

I worked on my cross stitch during the flight home and finished it. I now have a beautiful heirloom to remember my trip by...♥!
