Iceland Glacier

Global warming will melt this glacier in my lifetime.
Meanwhile, looking at the ice that formed thousands of years ago and the trail it has left on its way to the sea I couldn’t help but wonder how far out into the bay where I was standing it had been and how long ago it was.
Now the water nourishes small plants clinging to life in the cold and I wonder what will happen to them when the icy cold water is gone.
