Ice crusted vessel on the Bay

Just received these photos from one of our Bay of Fundy whale watch operators: Brier Island Whale & Seabird Cruises. There is certainly no whale watching at this time of year (starts in the spring!) but it's nice to see that Shelley is keeping a pretty close eye on activities down at the wharf.

Hi Terri – thought you’d enjoy seeing an interesting winter sight here on Brier Island at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. While we don’t usually get much snow, we DO get some interesting ice formations during the winter fishing season. Here’s a photo of a vessel docked just below my house. The Mega Nova Ice 2 shows how ice formed on a slant as they were steaming into the wind. As a lobster boat it’s out on the ‘high seas’ - well, as much as 20 nautical miles off shore - every day and thus has many opportunities to get ‘decorated’ with ice. Keep warm! Shelley
