The sun shines above the town of Conche in Newfoundland Labrador which helps in the thawing of the pack ice that fills the harbour and prevents the fishermen from heading out in their boats. Conche Harbour can be clogged with pack ice for a couple of months at a time if the weather does not cooperate or for much shorter lengths of time if the sun shines on a day to day basis.Small pieces of ice can break off the larger chunks of pack ice once they have disintegrated enough, making it easier for the ice to melt. You can actually see the drips falling off the pack ice in this picture and see where the ice is beginning to thin around the blue hues.The town of Conche is a small community that sits at the North East tip of Newfoundand's Northern Peninsula with a deep harbour which makes it the perfect resting place for the pack ice. When the pack ice decides it is time to settle into the harbour, it makes the already picturesque scenery into an outstanding display of nature' s wonders.The town of Conche in Newfoundland Labrador is a very interesting place to visit and explore the history of this unique village. You can spend days sitting along the shores of the harbour in the late spring and early summer and watch the pack ice change shape daily. Whales are regular visitors to Conche harbour and there is a fairly large amount of seals that live in and along the banks of the harbour.Pack Ice in Conche Harbour, Conche, French Shore, Northern Peninsula, Great Northern Peninsula, Viking Trail, Newfoundland, Canada.
