St. John’s to Cape Spear
July 1st turned out to be a perfect day to head to Cape Spear. It’s usually 5-8 degrees colder out there than it is in downtown St. John’s (only 14 km away), but on this day the weather was warm and not even overly windy! We even got to see a few humpback whales.
The pavement is in really good condition, and the road has some great twists and turns (especially the big turn heading up to Shea Heights! Weeeeee!). If you want to take full advantage of this, I suggest hitting the road in the morning (just watch for moose). The road gets quite busy this time of year as Cape Spear is a major tourist attraction being the most easterly point in North America.
