I checked the Icefinder website and it was showing a berg near North Head but when we arrived in Bay Bulls it was actually on the other side off of South Head... I guess it must have moved since the last time it was entered on the site. As we rounded the head there was a much smaller iceberg (called a 'bergy bit') against the shore and there were smaller bergy bits and little pieces of ice floating in the water. It was evident the smaller berg and the pieces had come off of the larger iceberg... a good sign that the weather is finally warming up around here, and also a sign that these bergs are becoming unstable as they melt in the warmer weather.
I took lots of pics other than of the icebergs but figured I would just post some shots of the bergs as it was the primary focus for the morning, and there will be lots of non-ice berg pics later in the season when they have all gone from our shores....
My pics to share...

We all agreed it was a great day for Gary's very first paddle of this year...
