That’s at the Westman islands (Vestmannaeyjar)). We almost went there.  Would have been about $100 to put the car on the ferry and go there.  I was cheap plus the time was an issue. Then to see that formation you needed to take a rib boat tour. 
That was where the volcano in the 1970s threatened a town and they stopped it.  Cool museum there plus lots of puffins.

Not really sure.  We kayaked in the glacial lagoon and the guide said it was around 5C there (it feeds into the ocean, so at low tide water flows out from the lagoon. At high tide it flows in a little.  

At the beaches we went to we didn't walk in the water.

Missed the second question.  Lots of natural hot springs. Some have been turned into pools.  The big one called Blue Lagoon is actually man made

Parts of the country have pockets of thermal activity right near the surface so lots of steam vents. 
 

We also went to a geyser (at a spot called Geysir which is where the name comes from. ).

Move on and things will get back to normal.  People don't like us having fun while they live their dole angry lives. You should move up here permanently 

Definitely headed in that direction. Going up next week to start getting back in the fall/winter routine up there through April.
