Frozen in time
Cavendish resident Jeff Jackson and his family spent the afternoon of April 20 out on the harbour in Trinity Bay chasing whales and icebergs. Jeff, who had just come back from seal hunting, says he could have made more money as a tour guide that day, than a sealer.
Jackson wanted to share these photos he captured during the outing with Compass readers.

HAPPY DANCE - The still and quiet waters of Trinity Bay provided a great stage for this whale’s performance last Monday, April 20. ON THE ROCKS - Alicia Jackson nibbles on a piece of ice, which fell from a huge iceberg floating in the harbour just off Cavendish. Alicia, 13, has been a Compasscarrier for the past four years. She eventually handed the ice over to her dad, Jeff, who uses it to make “the best tasting ever holiday slush.” Iceberg water is still as fresh as it was when it was first formed thousands of years ago. BIG BERG - This big berg sitting in the waters just off Cavendish has caught the eye of many people driving through the Trinity South town. Jeff Jackson and his family got a close up look at the berg during a boat ride around the harbour last week.
