... 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.

... 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.

We went home for lunch, 'cyclone packed' all our clothes in preparation for moving to Julia and Andrew's that night, and headed down town.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover it was open to the public and that there were cadets and ...

... have a sleep and Amanda took me downtown for a look around. We went up to Signal Hill It was soooo cold and windy there. Nice view though. Saw the lighthouse at the most easterly point of Canada from there. There was so much snow on the roads that it wasn't the best idea to be driving around so we headed back. Today, Boxing Day we took the girls for a sleigh ride ...
