Jason Griffiths of Newfoundland, Canada captured video from his balcony of this sizable midsummer iceberg crackling and careening into the sea. Meanwhile, his wife–an Ontario native, unfamiliar with the ways of the sea–and their dogs were on the beach. Toward the end of the clip as the waves make shore, you can hear him beckoning to them, “Get off the beach!”
Tourists and locals alike have been photographing and filming icebergs all summer long in the waters off Kings Point, Newfoundland, which has been frequented by an unusually high number of icebergs all summer long, CBC News reports. –OJB
