My First Iceberg Aug 6, 2011
New and Old Lobster Pots An Old Engine
Parson's Point Fishing Boats The Arches

Driving Route 430 in Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland is a wonderful experience. Landscapes are far more interesting than along the Trans-Canada Highway in the south. On the way, I stopped at several places, mainly to take pictures. It was a fishing village of Parson's Point and the historical point of Port aux Choix. The latter is famous for its archeological sites. It is a place where Archaic Indians and Dorset Paleoeskimo people lived a few thousand years ago. There is not much to see, but always something to learn about.

By the end of day, I reached a village of Conche accessible only by gravel road. Before going there, I checked the latest status on website IcebergFinder. They reported a few icebergs near the shore in Conche. I was hoping to see some of them. While driving down the hill, entering the old fishing village I had a wonderful feeling of experiencing something for the first time in my life. I was stunned; iceberg was really close to the shore and there were more around.

Spending sometime in the village I was came across a couple of local residents. Following the conversation the man asked me where do I come from and why did I come here. I answered that icebergs are the main reason for my visit and that just admire them for the first time in my life. "Really, you have never seen icebergs before? It's weird" he replied.
