In the small harbour of St. Anthony on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada pack ice lingers in the harbour. This large piece of pack ice has moved in and beached itself along the coastline and will continue its melting process until there is nothing left.Pack ice fills the harbour of the smaller towns like St. Anthony during the winter months in Newfoundland which can stop all boats from leaving the docks. The pack ice can hang around and block St. Anthony Harbor until the middle of June some years but that all depends on the day to day temperatures.When some of the larges masses of pack ice have beached themselves, it gives tourists a chance to have a close look at these intriguing formations of ice. Each chunk of pack ice is unique and they will alter their appearance daily as they slowly melt away for another season.For locals of St. Anthony, Newfoundland, they can enjoy the colours of the pack ice from their front windows which is a yearly sight but for tourists just visiting Newfoundland, they can wander the harbour and get a closer look. It is remarkable to imagine which large iceberg each piece of pack ice has broken off of and how far their journey has been.The large icebergs can be seen in Iceberg Alley in Newfoundland, which is reachable by a boat tour that leaves St. Anthony harbour or just enjoy the natural beauty of the pack ice beached along the shore.Pack Ice in the St Anthony Harbour, St Anthony, Northern Peninsula, Viking Trail, Newfoundland, Canada.
