Icebergs!

The sunlight has allowed us to travel out onto the fjord to visit icebergs. The icebergs can be extremely large -- notice the person waving from in front of the iceberg shown in the image below. That's me beside the iceberg in the picture to the right. And yes, the ice really is that colour of blue. It's really neat -- when a crack (or fissure) forms, sea water rushes in and freezes clear. You can see deep into an iceberg through one of these fissures.

This concludes the tale of my Arctic adventure. I hope that you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it and actually going to Eureka. Please feel free to send any comments that you may have to me at tomduck fizz phys dal ca.
