Newfoundland Icebergs

This photo from Yahoo News today brings back fond memories of the 18 months my wife and I spent in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.  Ahhh summer days, just watching the icebergs drift by.

Photo caption: An impressive iceberg arrived in Newfoundland’s Goose Cove in mid-July. “Icebergs float in from Greenland,” said the photographer, Gene Patey. This one briefly blocked the town’s harbor before breaking apart and melting, “but the fishermen took their chances.”

Love the photo!

As a matter of fact, I used it on my own blog as an example of an iceberg-in-Newfoundland photo.

I referenced your blog, of course.
