The icebergs in Quidi Vidi continue to draw in a lot of people, which made me hesitant to go there today. You see, I don’t like crowds, it’s one of the reasons I enjoy hiking the East Coast Trail alone. Anyway, the light was too good to waste so I went anyway.

Just as I walked into this great view, the iceberg started making noises. First it made a series of loud cracks, then it sounded like a giant window shattering, before breaking into two pieces and immediately rolling over, making waves:

Notice the iceberg in the background? That’s the one the ice climbers explored two days ago. It’s a bit harder to ascend today, as some of the base has fallen off.

A couple of kayakers were the iceberg explorers in today’s scenery:

One of them popped out of his kayak and got on the iceberg for a minute, then jumped off, twice. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
