Icebergs in the coves of St Anthony

After the flat and near barren shores of the coastal drive it is hard to convey the thrill of cresting a rocky rise to a vision of shimmering ice made even more startling by the contrast of the greygreenblue ocean.

We have come to the edge of the world to witness a display of the end of the world as we know it, as Ghia evolves and adapts to the effects of climate change. Of this the locals have no doubt, having not witnessed anything resembling this at this time of year in remembered history. Even the locals sit with us and watch in awe as the icebergs calve and roll. It does bring a strange poignancy to the viewing.

But what a sight to behold this ocean sculpted panorama… more to come!!
