On our way back from Ferryland we drove to Cape Spear, which is about 30 minutes from the house and was another place to get out and stretch our legs. It is also the easternmost point in continental North America and has a lighthouse that is the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland (originally constructed in 1834). This coast is mainly cliffs, so there was no throwing rocks into the water or getting close to the water. This is the closest point that we will be able to go to watch the whales as they migrate through and where we can see the ice bergs as they float by. I am told that we should start seeing whales and icebergs between May (probably the end) and June. I am excited about this. There are some World War II bunkers and canons that you can walk through and look at, the kids liked to climb on the BIG canons.
