This is starting to look interesting. We will be in that neck of the woods in July and, if lucky, we will get a glimpse of that thing.
Bermuda-sized ‘ice island’ could threaten ships, oil rigs off coast of Newfoundland

A Bermuda-sized slab of ice from northern Greenland is breaking apart off Labrador, littering the area with icebergs that could pose a threat to offshore oil rigs and ship traffic.
The largest remaining piece of the ice island still floating, called PII-A, was over 58 square kilometres at the last measurement. It is considered an ice island rather than an iceberg because it is wider than it is deep. On Thursday it was 380 kilometres north of St. Anthony, on the tip of Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula.
