Another  wharf crowded with flotilla boats.

By the end of the trip we had experienced just about every docking and rafting situation imaginable

We loved having the local kids on board.

Although most young people grow up near the water and can handle power boats very well, they know nothing about sail boats. There are not many people left who can remember the days of the sailing schooners.

Our first iceberg - off the south east corner of Newfoundland near Cape Race.

The icebergs come down the east coast and then go out to sea, they don't come along the south coast. The next day we had thick fog so the boats without radar stayed close to those with radar.

There are lots of photos of icebergs on other pages!

When the first iceberg was spotted the flotilla behaved like kids in a candy store. It was a beautiful day for photos and the whole flotilla sailed round and round the bergs taking shots of other boats. Some even launched dinghies .

This is our boat Meriah, we are not as close to the berg as it looks. There was no wind which is perhaps just as well considering there were so many boats milling about.
