But watchout for icebergs.
Icebergs. Yeah we get those here of the coast of Newfoundland
. In the spring we get the ice floes, which are enormous sheets
of ice. Often they are quite thick and rafted up into huge ridges where they collide. Icebreakers have to make channels for fishing
vessels and commercial
vessels. Boats and even large ships quite often get stuck in it.
The bergs come later, usually in June. But this year they were very late, in August. We had one enormous berg this year that was the size of a fair size island. It broke off from Greenland about a year or so ago, drifted north for a bit in the current
, then turned around and came our way. All the icebergs follow this same route
