Living along Newfoundland's coastline is truly amazing. Although beautiful in its own right, the ocean is sometimes embellished with extra gifts from Mother Nature including the arrival of sea ice. As with all things in nature, it is difficult to predict where, when, or for how long sea ice will remain once it arrives in an area. Some years, the coastlines remain free from sea ice; other years, the coast can be densely packed with ice one day and gone the next. One thing for certain, however, when sea ice arrives, it is something special to behold and creates a setting for an amazing winter adventure!
