When I returned I found Elizabeth immediately. She and Earl were already waiting for me.
took some more pictures before we climbed in the boat. He told me that Elizabeth wanted to see icebergs and that he gladly will gibe her a chance.
He did not say anything about the weather which had not changed what I found very unusual. I was happy about this bonus, but I still was not please about the little time he had given us to explore Battle Harbour. Did he not realize how long our trip was to come here?

Speeding up

Earl did not have any problems to find an iceberg. Could he smell them?
We circled slowly around it and then he accelerated the boat. The sea was still very calm and the ride was nit bumpy.
I was looking for whales, but not a single one showed up.

Good bye iceberg

When Earl increased the power the engine did not respond properly. Something was wrong he told us. No panic in his voice and the engine was still running but our speed was very slow compared to the time before. Luckily the sea was still very calm.
Was that oil in the water? I did not ask him and he did not call a tow service. After a very leisurely ride we arrived safely in the harbor from St. Lewis.
I got a proof that two engines are really a good safety feature for a boat in such an area. That is also good practice for airplanes and helicopters.
Without any doubt this trip was a real adventure similar to my motor bike tours in Europe where I celebrated sometimes two additional birthdays in one year.
I do not want to blame only Earl for the unacceptable short trip to "Battle Harbour". I should have done more research, There are operators in Mary's Harbour and even in Red Bay who offer such tours. I assume that they use larger boats and more safety features and most important more time on the island.
We tried to figure out how live on "Battle Harbour" was during winter if people had to stay there. This is only one of the questions which we could not ask.
Despite the fact that Elizabeth does not like it cold she wanted to visit Labrador during the winter. I never could fulfill her dream.
