In search of an Iceberg

Today we headed to Bridgeport Newfoundland to see a rare sight - the first iceberg to migrate into their harbor in 35 years. It was not there. 

We met a nice guy carrying a lobster down the street and he said "It's still out there, sure enough. Around the corner. I'll call my son and he'll take you to see it." We said OK (of course) and headed for the harbor. We met Dwayne Canning there and he took us straight away on his 14 ft dory.

When we got just outside the main harbor, the iceberg was sitting there doing what icebergs do - melting slowly and making a lot of cracking noises. The weather has been hot the last few days so this berg is getting small fast. We're so happy we met Dwayne (and his Dad) and got the chance to see this berg up close!
