After nearly seven hours in the air, I was still in Canada. I had gone from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic and wanted to make the most of my first day in Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital, St John’s, in Canada’s most eastern province.
St John’s Signal Hill was originally a battleground between the English and French. My interest however, was because this was where Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal.
After a tour of the small museum in the Cabot tower, Avalon Peninsular beckoned. A trail skirted the coastline on a beautifully warm summer day and I hiked along the Atlantic coast into The Narrows that led to St John’s well protected harbour.
