While in the Viking area you have to take a trip into St. Anthony. It’s only about 45 minutes south of the viking area, but it’s worth the ride.
St. Anthony has a small cove called Goose Cove Bay. This, my dear friends is were the icebergs go. And they say this year, they have had more icebergs than ever. Global warming? Naaahh. But it sure is nice of Mother Nature to break off chunks of herself for our amusement.
Goose Cove Bay is a delightful little fishing village just down the street from the town of St. Anthony. The icebergs in this area drift here from Greenland.

It’s such a popular destination for tourists that the village built a park and walking paths around the cliffs so visitors can view them easily.

It was an overcast day and windy, which made it cool, to down right cold. The thermostat said it was in the 50’s, but with the wind coming off the bay, it felt colder. And with no sun, that didn’t help the matter.
All along the path are wildflowers. So pretty on the cloudy day.
