What a beautiful surprise I had today, looking out of my kitchen window. The ocean has temporarily disappeared, since the sea ice from the Arctic has arrived. It is a sure sign that Spring is close ! The sea ice will retreat, and then come back in a few more times before it goes out for the year. Then, the majestic icebergs will arrive !
In 2016, a polar bear floated down on an ice floe from the Arctic, and landed in Bonavista. He was enticed by the smell coming from our local fried chicken restaurant. He went over there and frightened the customers ! The huge bear was then tranquillized by animal control officers and helicoptered back to his natural habitat.
