I know that it has been on the internet but in case anyone missed it, this is an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland. It was in April 1912 that Titanic went down close to Newfoundland. Something tells me that they might have spotted this one in time!

An impressive piece of ice. It is bringing the tourists to that area. As it is so close to the shore they believe it has grounded, and when you consider that 9/10th of an iceberg is below water level then it must be huge.

Perhaps someone could get planning permission to build one of those "ice hotels" on it! Tongue

I do wonder what will happen to those bergs - especially if they are grounded near the shoreline.

They'll melt, eventually - probably not as quickly as if they were in the open ocean though.

I remember one like this that grounded near a place we used to spend time in the summer. It stayed all summer and lowered the tempuratqure to the point that it was too cold for spending time on the beach. Actually, it wasn't very far from where this one is. It eventually broke up and washed out to sea and disappeared.
