FIRST ICEBERG ! ! !

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Good morning folks, it is 6:11 AM EST. That means is 7:30 AM approximately our time. We had the most beautiful sunrise this morning about 4:45 AM. There was just a bit of red popped up over the horizon and it was red for a long time. Then in 5 minutes the whole sun was up! It was one of those things that you had to force yourself to not stare at as it was so beautiful. If you stare at the bright sun you can hurt your eyes. It was just absolutely gorgeous coming up over the horizon.
What is happening right now is that we are seeing a whole bunch of whales. We saw one big school with a bunch of whales and porpoise all together feasting on something. We kept moving through it.
Right now I have seen my first iceberg!!! It was a very small one, but it is still an iceberg. It is exciting to actually see here as we are crossing. We have gone as far east as you can go in North America. So now we are going east and right up into the Labrador Current. This is very exciting to me!
We will talk to you later. God Bless
