Chilly swim, Baie Verte sea ice
Updated: Mar 7, 2021
Out for a swim amongst the ice chunks being pulled into the bay from the main channel of the Northumberland Strait by the incoming tide. Big chunks like this don't happen often, usually we get surface ice on the bay that breaks up after the sun comes out or the tide pushes it around. But the storm a couple of days ago left a ton of snow on top of the ice as it formed overnight, and we haven't had any sun in a couple of days, so it's melting very slowly. Now that was fun!
