The first of May and I woke up to a sprinkle of the white fluffy stuff on the ground - not my idea of a fun day. However, the temperature is rising and it is melting quickly. Such is life in the north Atlantic.

From my upstairs window (on a clear day), I can see Cape Spear, the most easterly point of land in North America. Cabot Tower, located on Signal Hill, National Historic Site of Canada, is also visible from my house and from almost anywhere in the city. It was here in 1901, that the first transatlantic wireless signal by Guglielmo Marconi was sent. Thought I'd add a bit of history for those of you who enjoy exploring new places.
