This all started with word from the Straight Shore of a huge iceberg seen on January 14, 2016.
By January 19, it had moved to the Bonavista area and decided to hang around. We drove out from Gander to see it on January 24 and it was spectacular.
Grounded off the community of Elliston for a month the berg is now on the move again!
Eric tells us she measures about the same size as Green Island, Bonavista or 0,5 of a mile in length or a bit over 0,8 of a kilometre. That’s big, no matter how you measure it. She’ll be missed in Elliston now that she’s taking her leave.
Visible in Port Union and other communities, we’re hoping for more sightings as it moves along the coast.

I’m hoping it makes it’s way down closer to us in St John’s. It’s almost a 3 or 4 hour drive from here to Elliston so as much as I would have liked to get a picture of it, that’s just a bit far.
