May 15, 2016 and the Gander Loop


First day of trouting season so we saw lots of boats and ATVs and even one man fishing with a bamboo rod.

Greenspond bergs were very far off but there were 5 of them. Binoculars worked well here.


Back on Route 320 we saw icebergs from the road and thought we’d see them in Newtown. Not a lot of luck there but a great spot for some dashboard dining and a walk around the Barbour Heritage properties.

Again, on the highway, we could see icebergs from the main road between Newtown and Lumsden.


So near and yet so far!

We started in Lumsden at the government wharf area. There were 13  or 14 bergs. I’ve actually lost count! More pictures on the Newfoundland Iceberg Reports facebook page.


From the wharf we down past the campgrounds on Atlantic Drive. From here we could see 18 icebergs of all shapes and sizes. We didn’t count a couple of little ones. Where there are 18, the little ones don’t even matter.
