Apparently there is a bumper crop of icebergs along the Newfoundland coast this spring! It is been reported that there are at least 25 icebergs just off the coast of St. Anthony, NL. Usually there are only about 3 or 4 at this time of year. Read more about this HERE. Quidi Vidi Village in the east end of St. John's, has its own grounded iceberg. In fact, there were so many people driving down to see it that the road was closed for awhile.

A friend did manage to take some photos on Friday. Here's one of them. With warm temperatures the last few days, the 'berg' has gotten smaller. To see just how large it was, check out these two rock climbers as they reach the top of the iceberg.

Here are some interesting links relating to icebergs:

    Thank you so much for sharing!
