Going into Iceberg Territory

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Hi this is Ralph we're about 10 miles from the corner of the Labrador current and the Atlantic ocean. We will be taking a left at that time going north-east. I didn’t realize how far east you have to go in order to go north around the US as far north as you can go. I didn’t realize that until this trip. This morning we started towards Goose Bay we are making a stop in Saint John. It’s a beautiful, beautiful area, gorgeous day and we saw many pod's of whales, tiny whales or gigantic porpoises, they're everywhere. We are going north, north-east. 2-4 foot waves, the wind at our back. I sat in front of the boat and took a nap, It was the first time I did that the entire trip. Bob was driving.
It’s absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful lighthouses. There are a lot of birds going north, a ton of birds,… Beautiful cliffs…absolutely pristine edge of the NE Continent
We are going left, or north and heading into iceberg territory. All is going well. We are being safe. Safety is very important to us so we can be back home to see our families and my son go off to college. Have a great day and God Bless you.
