Cape Spear Newfoundland

Most eastern point in North America

I have reached Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America!  5,956 kilometers, 4 US States, 6 Canadian provinces and 4 ferry crossing and I have finally made it. I was closer to Ireland than I am to my home in Toronto.  I guess you could say we took the long scenic route, but that is what this journey is all about, enjoying the ride!

As I ride away from Cape Spear, Newfoundland it finally hit me. I am on the journey of a lifetime. Looking in the mirror and seeing the Cape Spear lighthouse my heart speeds up a little as I realize that my next major destination is Prudhoe Bay Alaska.

I am on my 5th ferry now heading back to the mainland, North Sydney Nova Scotia. In a berth with a window, the thick fog only allows me to see a few meters over the ocean. The ocean is calm.

Newfoundland is a truly amazing place. I have had the pleasure of visiting every province in Canada and Newfoundland is, by far, my favourite. So much happened here that I am going to have to take some time to write about it properly, more to follow. I will be back to Newfoundland, I was paid the highest compliment by a beautiful raven haired Newfie woman “you’re not truly a mainlander, I can tell”.
