Signal Hill in St. John’s at Night

14 Jul, 2012

St. John’s, Newfoundland is one of the most beautiful cities in Canada, maybe the world. Many Newfoundlanders take for granted that on any given night they can drive for a few minutes and take in sights like this one.

Featured in this photo is Cabot Tower atop Signal Hill. The first transatlantic messages were sent from here.

The pond in the foreground is George’s Pond. Criminals used to be anchored dropped in this pond because the myth says that the pond is bottomless. It was the fastest way to send criminals to hell.

This photo is by my friend Jennifer Dawson.
