Phare-de-Cap-Spear

Cape Spear Drive, St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
http://www.pc.gc.ca/fra/lhn-nhs/nl/spear/index.aspx

Le Phare-de-Cap-Spear surplombe une vaste étendue d’océan bleu indigo où défilent des icebergs scintillants, où émergent des baleines à bosse et où des groupes de marsouins font jaillir des jets d’eau dans l’air de l’Atlantique.Le plus ancien phare à avoir subsisté jusqu'à nos jours à Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador. Construit en 1835 par la colonie de Terre-Neuve afin de signaler l'approche du port de St. John's. Il est situé sur la pointe de terre la plus à l'est de l'Amérique du nord.

    Go early, at least 45 minutes before sunrise. Take the time to bundle up *yes, even during the summer, and then head out on the well-groomed boardwalks and paths. You'll eventually stumble across the most easterly point in North America (except Greenland, if you count it). It is SO worth the cold and bitter winds to be the first person to see the sun rise. Even if the clouds are out, you will FEEL the change!

    I had visited fairly early in the day and during the week, so for the most part I was by myself and could take so many wonderful photos!

  • Beautiful!

    I'm originally from St. John's, NL, but moved away at a young age. I went back to visit and my cousin took me here. Absolutely beautiful.

    Cape spear is a special place for many people, but my connection is even a bit stronger... my ancestors, the Cantwell family, were actually the lighthouse keepers at Cape Spear for many generations. My great-grandmother was even born in the Cape Spear lighthouse! When ever I visit my favourite thing to do is imagine what it must have been like for them to live alone with the never ending ocean in their backyard. I bet it must have been difficult in the harsh winters but the beautiful summer days must have made up for it! The sun was shining and the sky was clear the day I visited... I even saw a couple of whales! I hope everyone else who visits enjoys it as much as me :)
