The ice­berg cometh

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - MONTHLY ROUND-UP -

A spec­tac­u­lar ice­berg at­tracted flocks of tourists to a small town in New­found­land when it sailed past the Cana­dian coast and be­came stuck in the shal­low wa­ters. The giant ice­berg, which tow­ered about 15 storeys above sea level, has now moved on, the local tourism board says, but there are many smaller ice­bergs dot­ted around the shores. The pic­turesque shore­line is known as Ice­berg Al­ley. Each year vol­un­teers use satel­lite to track ice­bergs.

April marks the start of ice­berg sea­son along the Cana­dian coast.
