    CAPE SPEAR LIGHTHOUSE

     
    Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador was the first Landmark we visited on our one week visit this summer to this scenic Atlantic province of Canada.

    The view was breathtaking with crashing waves and occasional whale sighting, dipping in and out of the ocean below. Cape Spear Lighthouse guided mariners safely into St. John's and further along the coast. This was also used during WWII where a Canadian coastal defence battery offered protection from the menace of U Boats.

    The Atlantic oceans surrounding it is also frequented by whales heading north to summer feeding grounds. Seabirds also nest and raise their young among nearby cliffs and islands.

    This Lighthouse is the oldest surviving lighthouse in the province and an iconic symbol of Newfoundland and Labrador.
