The icebergs are here now !
Every year, multitudes of these gigantic ice chunks break off from glaciers in Greenland, and float by our village. We live in what is known as : ‘Iceberg Alley’.
This means that it is also the time when flat sheets of ice, called ice floes, break off from the Arctic ice. Some of these contain Polar Bears, which become trapped on them.
Several years ago, an ice floe carrying a hungry Polar Bear landed in our village. He was attracted to our local fried chicken diner by the wonderful smell.
He scared the customers before being subdued by animal rescue officers and returned to his native habitat.
Even in unpredictable times, God maintains the rhythm of nature.
Once the icebergs melt, the ocean will be filled with tiny fish called Capelin.
Then, chasing the Capelin, the majestic whales will come.
