St. John’s

St. Johns and Cape Spear is pretty much the end of the road east for us. We literally can’t go any farther east without getting on a boat.

Our first stop was the top of Signal Hill and the National Historic Site. Naturally, Bode earned another Xplorer dog tag. We lucked out and timed our visit with the noon firing of the canon.

After a fairly tame lunch of fish and chips (no tongues) we visited Cape Spear. Yet another dog tag and more great views. The park has erected a chain link fence near the ‘Easternmost Point’ presumably to prevent people from playing the “I’m More Easterly Than You” game and ending up in the ocean at the bottom of the cliff.

And, for the second year in a row, we’re traveling with the Mali Mish gang during Mila’s birthday. We celebrated with trip to some kind of indoor climbing gym for the kids – they loved it.
