Newfoundland - Day 7

Last evening we enjoyed the company of a pod of dolphins that swam around the boat and played in our bow wake for a while. This morning we arrived in Newfoundland waters and soon after saw our first iceberg! We're not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but it was too far away (and too low to the water) for a photo op. Most common March through July, these icebergs are pieces from Greenland's glaciers that have been carried south by the wind and currents.
We've nearly finished working our way up the east coast to St John's, the capital of Newfoundland. We hope to stay on the town dock in St John's Harbour through Wednesday while we meet up with our new crew, provision and wait for a low-pressure system (rain & fog) to pass. Just spotted another berg...
