Spring ice on the Great Northern Peninsula

Thanks to a very beautiful and busy summer it’s taken me a while to tell you about all the places my mom and I visited on our spring trip to Newfoundland. You’ve already read about our stay in Port aux Basques and Port au Port, after that came our unscheduled but beautiful visit to Gros Morne […]

With April just around the corner, let’s try to work out what kind of iceberg season 2017 will bring. Below you’ll find 10 years of Canadian Ice Service iceberg charts for every March 31 (today) and every May 20 (the usual ‘peak’ of the Avalon iceberg season), gathered side by side in order to see how the 2 dates compare over the course […]
