Cape Spear


Yesterday, we drove to Cape Spear then continued west through Petty Harbour and Bay Bulls and finally returning to St. John’s and a walk downtown.

Cape Spear currently hosts a lighthouse, but formerly hosted a fortress guarding the entrance into St. John’s Harbour.  The Cape is also the eastern-most point of land on the North American Continent.  At that eastern-most point the seas were rougher than we had seen since arriving; the wind was strong and cold.  A flag flew near by; it must be the eastern-most flag on the Continent.

In Bay Bulls we had lunch and returned to St. John’s for a walk along the harbour and then back along Duckworth Street and then New Gower St. and then to our apartment.
