When we were there it was cold and raining, but it added to the adventure. There are two lighthouses and both were very photographic.

Unfortunately the lighthouse was closed but there is still a lot to see and learn. We were amazed by the history of the area.

We have a poster that is the David Blackwood lithograph of this impressive structure, and it is equally awesome to see it in person, despite the biting cold wind on a late May day.

Easternmost bit of North America! Great view of Atlantic and St.John’s, fascinating part of WWII defenses. Just don’t expect to get there quickly... the road has speed limits that the Canadians stick to, so going 45mph is going fast.

Eastern-most point of Canada. Have to visit her if you’re in St. John’s. Not that far (car ride) from downtown. Be prepared for wind.

It’s worth a stop even for 30 minutes. We were there on a windy day in October. All the buildings were closed for the season, but it was well worth the visit to walk around and watch the waves. There was a lower parking lot... More
