We were looking forward to a relaxing afternoon after being on two long plane rides and battling a bit of jet lag. Lagoon kids equated the lagoon to a giant pool so they were excited.
Nude Blue Lagoon is a unique geothermal spa. The excess water supposedly totally clean is pumped into the lagoon and renewed every 40 hours. Yes, it was man made but seeing blue lava field, one can easily believe it was all supernatural.
The blue color is said to come from the blue-green algae. Somehow, the power plant usually gets left off in those idyllic marketing images. As we drove through the entrance, we saw a few people taking pictures of a small body of blue water on the side of the road.
I thought of Windex blue the glass cleaner and my kids thought light Gatorage Blue the drink. Of course, the the tourists that we are, joined them.
