Texas native Grandma, Judith Streng, recently was on vacation in Jokulsarlon Logoon, Iceland, when she decided to let it all go and show what a real ice queen is made of! While traveling with her son, Rod Streng, Judith needed to take a rest when she spotted the ideal spot, an ice block shaped like a throne! Her son wanted to capture the moment, so he started taking pics when all of a sudden, a wave swooped in to reclaim the frozen piece of ice and carried his mother away too!
“It was shaped like an easy place to sit. You can tell by looking at the shape of it; and I thought, “Well, this looks like fun.”, she stated through her carefree smile. Soon after taking her place on the throne as the rightful ruler of the quickly melting iceberg, Judith noticed that it began to move. “A very large wave came in and made the throne rock, and I could tell that I was slipping off!” Rod was powerless to help so he continued to capture the moment with his camera to show friends and family.
“I thought it was safe. One girl had been on it and then two girls at the same time; it was very secure with them. But I don’t weigh very much so it was a little easier to float off with me, I guess.” Judith said with the same enthusiastic smile from the pics captured by her son.
While the newly coronated Ice Queen was enjoying her maiden voyage out to sea, she was quickly spotted. Rescue efforts were successfully made by the local Coast Guard and a nearby boat, captained by Randy Lacount, swiftly swooped in to save her from her chilling adventure. Rod’s daughter, Catherine, wanted to share her Grandmother’s delight so the 24-year-old took to Twitter to post photos of her Grandmother enjoying her wild ride!
“You know, I always wanted to be a queen. I mean, come on! That was my chance!” she joked. While her mini iceberg throne helped to make it possible, the deal was sealed by Twitter through all the amazing comments she received. Many remarked that her blonde hair made her resemble an older version of Elsa; while others questioned if this was a sign that Frozen 3 was in the works.
