St Johns Newfoundland Labrador Canada

We arrived at St Johns in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada 3rd September 2016.

It's a deep water port. The dock is near the city centre so we did not need local transportation. Maps are available from tourist kiosks.

After leaving the ship we walked up a hill within the park of the National War Memorial.

On Duckworth Street we turned right, connected to Signal Hill Rd, and ascended the hill.

And paused at a pond for pictures.

At the top of the hill is a small structure (Cabot Tower)  housing the story of Marconi's wireless signal reception sent from Cornwall, England 12 December, 1901.

Storyboards around the cool and windy summit tell about the history of the area.

Inside the tower is a gift shop inside and at the top of the tower there are opportunities to view the area.

After our descent, we stopped in a Tim Horton's for hot drinks, doughnuts, toilets, and free WiFi.

A variety of shops line both sides of the street.
