Day 13: Exploring Signal Hill

To explore Signal Hill where Mr Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless message in 1901, we have to walk up and up and up…Surely the streets of St John’s (and most coastal towns of Newfoundland) can be compared to San Francisco’s…

But the view is well worth it.

Signal Hill was also visited by Jean Cabot 1497. The Cabot tower was built in his honour.

Tonight, we attend a dinner theatre by The Spirit of Newfoundland Productions. Where once they stood is a dramatic and comedic tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Beaumont Hamel during WW1. What an exceptional performance!

The plan is to be on Signal Hill tomorrow at 6 a.m. We intend to be the first Canadians to wish Canada a 150th anniversary….
