Top 10 paddles of 2014 - #4

On May 13th Hazen and I continued the tour of icebergs that had drifted into our waters in Conception Bay North.  I knew the icebergs were there because I could see them on the horizon some 35 kilometers way.  We drove for about an hour and a half and then scouted the area for the best pace to put in, deciding on the community of Blackhead.

We visited our first berg in Blackhead just off the beach before paddling north where there were more bergs in a little breeze towards Western Bay and Ochre Pit Cove.  This was an interesting one with one massive tower and two smaller ones.

This one was in Ochre pit Cove.  Its size is deceiving from a distance but as we ...

... got closer it grew in size.

The day was getting on so we returned on a following sea to Blackhead and returned to the city.  A bright day touring icebergs with a good friend is reason enough to put it on my list.

The original post has shots of more icebergs.

In addition to the stills I also shot some video which gives a more realistic feel on being on the sea among the icebergs.  I edited the video down to just under 15 minutes.
