Our HAL tour, Old St. John's & Cape Spear was wonderful. It lasted about 3 1/2 hours. We took a panoramic drive through the city then visited Signal Hill where the first trans-Atlantic wireless signal took place in 1901. The day we visited it was extremely windy. We had to hold on tightly to our hats and sun glasses. Then we traveled to Cape spear and had time to tour on our own. We visited the old lighthouse. It was a bit of a climb. I had time to walk down to the water for a lovely view of the waves hitting the rocks below. Before returning to the ship, we stopped briefly at a very picturesque fishing village, Petty Harbour.
