The City of Reykjavik

A red house-why not?

The door plaque has house number and the year it was built-1920

Love the bright cheerful colors everywhere.

Fascinating little shops everywhere.

And a harbor, that's why the city was built here.

Not a large city but spread out with quaint narrow streets and challenging roundabouts. Filled with many small shops although I hear there is a small mall outside town and a landmark cathedral at the top of the hill.

Lovely.... love that front door with the pretty plaque and floral pot.

You'd never miss finding the red house, now would you?

We'll be watching for more.....
