Ice Island in Long Tickle

Ice Islands

In the Fall 2011, September and October, residents and visitors to long Island were treated to a spectacular show of icebergs. This was an unusual time of year for icebergs as most years we see them in June and July. But this was an unusual year. Two years previous a huge chunk of ice broke off the glacier covering Greenland. It took that long for them to travel down iceberg ally to the Northeast coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. I took this shot of the Long Island ferry, the Nonia,to show a comparison of the size of it.

 The wind actually pushed the berg in on the dock at Pilley's Island one day and the ferry could not land.
 I called this one God's sense of humour-a blueprint for the Long Island Causeway sent to Government.
