We Are Now Naming Icebergs

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Hi everybody, this is Ralph. We just left a really nice little harbor called Battle Harbor. We came across the Straights of Bell Isle. We have come from Saint Anthony, about 60 miles north of Saint Anthony on the very, very southeast corner of Labrador. We stopped at Battle Harbor. It is a very nice little place. We had lunch there and then we’re heading on to Cartwright. As we went to pay the bill they said, boys the meal is on us! That is a 20 dollar donation approximately. We are so grateful for people like that. He was telling us about the history of Bell Harbor. That is a harbor within several islands. I guess probably no more than 30 people live here. It is quaint and they have a hotel and a restaurant. They are really nice folks and just wonderful people to get a chance to meet. Thank you for all that you have done.
By the way we are naming our icebergs as we go by them. The first one was named, well the first one we saw Bob thought was a boat, so of course we named it the “Boat”. We did not stop at it. The second one we did stop at and spent time at. It became known as “I Am Second”, named after our title sponsor . Then we named another one. I forgot what all the others were named. I will have to go back and look at the log. The one that we just named “John Koko” is a very large iceberg overlooking two smaller parts of the same iceberg. We felt like it was John Koko overlooking Benco Insurance Planners and Alco Insurance. They have helped us and we are very grateful for their help. So John, if you are reading this, we named an iceberg after you!
Anyway, have a wonderful day and God bless you.
Thank everyone so much for all you have done for us. Bye
