      ... its plentiful marine life. When English explorer Sir Humphrey Gilbert arrive3d in St. John’s harbour in 1583 he found French and Portuguese ships already anchored. This did not stop him claiming the area as England’s first overseas colony under Royal Charter of Queen Elizabeth I.

      By 1675, the English, Dutch and French were all vying for control over the ever-growing prosperous city and fearful of attacks built fortifications ...

      ... film at the Visitor's Center. We learned that Signal Hill was the harbor defense for St. John's, and was also the reception port for Marconi's first transatlantic wireless signal. Best of all for us, it offered a spectacular view of the city of St. John's, its harbor and the entrance out to sea.

      Next on our sightseeing list was a visit to Cape Spear, the most easterly point of land in North America. There are two lighthouses there; the tall one is Coast ...

      ... so quaint! Like little dolls houses all in a row. Apparently the ones all attached are called 'Jelly Bean Houses' because of all the different colours! (I want one!!).
