This morning Marije and I played a little guessing game about how much icebergs we would see on the way to work. She guessed 0, I guessed 1, we saw 2!
One small iceberg was close to the cliffs on Father Troy’s Trail, halfway between Torbay and Flatrock. The other one was a small pointy iceberg on the open ocean near the Ocean Sciences Centre in Logy Bay.
Since I don’t have a boat, I checked out the iceberg on the coast, which turned out to be in Whale Cove. The weather was awful with hard wind and snow, and it was pretty cold. Here are two pictures:
For an iceberg to really look good you need some sunshine, which we may be getting later this week. Fingers crossed!
If you want to go see this iceberg too, Whale Cove is at the end of easy walk #7 on my Easy hikes on the East Coast Trail page.
And one last thing: that small and pointy Logy Bay iceberg is probably well on its way to St. John’s by now, I’m betting you can see it from Signal Hill already, or really soon!
