Petermania (XXV): Breaking up is hard to do

After another brief sojourn behind weather, the Petermann ice emerged from cloud today, in pieces. The breakup would appear to have happened some time on Sunday as the original ice island rounded the Grey Islands. The two large remaining ice islands form an interesting combination with the two pairs of natural islands nearby, the Greys and the Horses.

The new ice islands may risk being embayed somewhere in the White Bay area, between the Northern Peninsula to the west and the Baie Verte Peninsula to the south:
