Mother's Day...

We had a wonderful mother's day here in St. John's. The weather was SOME WHAT nice so we took advantage of it and headed to Cape Spear after a yummy breakfast made by my wonderful hubby.

Cape Spear is the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador is located at the most easterly point of land in North America . It has been restored to its 1839 appearance and shows how a lightkeeper and his family might have lived in the mid-19th century. The Visitor Centre contains exhibits on the history of lighthouses and the tradition of lightkeeping. The site is surrounded by spectacular scenery and wildlife such as whales, seabirds and icebergs in season.

We are hoping to head up there again soon and see whales and icebergs, as a few icebergs are headed our way.

I think this picture is so neat, so I thought I would edit it a bit...
