more bergs in the passage
A few more pix of the big berg out by the gravel pit, on the way to long point. The pressure cracks around its base were easily 2 metres deep and there was some soggy snow along the leeward side indicating that seawater was being forced up as the movement of the berg and the tide opened and closed the cracks – almost like a crevasse back home in the mountains! Lots of animal tracks around – mostly fox and hare.
