Our room service breakfast arrives at 7:20AM just as we are docking
By 9:30AM we are off and heading East out A36 toward Thingvellir, a national park where the Alting Assembly met from 982 until 1798. This was the first parliament in the world.
Our next stop is Skaholt. This church and collection of buildings was the center of Icelandic religion for centuries.

The shop lady instead volunteers to bring a replacement to the ship as she is coming into Reykjavik and will be in the area of the ship around 7:30PM. Fortunately, we do not sail until 10PM. She takes the credit card information and says she will deliver it to security with our name and suite number on the package. Dick goes down and gives the head of the security detail a heads-up and we get ready for dinner and have a cocktail on our balcony while enjoying the view.
