When Susan, the Child and Youth Minister at St. James U.C. here in St. John's told me there was still icebergs in the ocean I really didn't believe what she was saying. Icebergs? Here in St. John's Nfld? I mean I know we're on the most Eastern side of Canada, but common there aren't icebergs in the ocean. Not here. When I think icebergs I think Alaska. North West Territories. I think north.
When Susan asked if I'd like to go hunting for icebergs, and seeing as though I've never seen a berg before, I was more than thrilled to be invited and responded with an immediate YES! So, Sunday, Susan, Hannah and I went on a trip to the ocean's coast and went searching for icebergs.
Our first stop was signal hill. It was VERY windy at the top but there, to the left, off in the distance was the first iceberg! It looked so small from the top of the hill, however when you compared it to the little boat that was also in the water, you could tell it was HUGE!
I was much like a 4 year old on Christmas. Huge smiles, lots of exciting giggles, and even the odd scream of amazement! I couldn't get over the beauty. We stopped at Middlecove beach to get a better view of the first iceberg. So amazing!
We also saw two more, one at Shoe Cove, and another at Outer Cove. Each time the size increased and my amazement doubled. I just couldn't get over it. Icebergs. Huge, massive icebergs!
I am so grateful that Susan and her daughter Hannah took me out to see another one of God's wondrous creations. I think pictures speak louder then words, and from the smile that was smeared across my face, I think it's pretty fair to say I was beyond happy!!
I hope you've enjoyed your long weekend. Its been a chilly one here, but at least the sun in shining.
