St. Johns

On Signal Hill
On Signal Hill
Iīm in St. Johnīs Nfld now Starting to work on reviewing the Simulator Project for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We had a quick look at the thing yesterday - but today is the main tour and meetings to look at progress and answer questions.

On Sunday Thomas and I were able to take a bit of time away for a Hike up Signal Hill. It was a beautiful walk through some of the residential areas and then up into the park along the coast. I had completely forgotten About the fact that this is where the first radio transmissions were sent by Marconi testing trans Atlantic. So, I whipped out my HAM radio and forced Thomas to grab the picture you see.

We have been really fortunate with weather - albeit a bit windy - but that did afford us some nice swell when we made a side trip at the end of meetings yesterday out to Middle Cove. This is a beautiful little beach that has a somewhat troubled history for anyone in the Coast Guard/Auxiliary as a three man rescue team perished there in the late 80īs. It was all caught on video and is still shown for training. So, despite the natural beauty - it was a bit of a sombre visit.

I should have more to report on our return from Simulator meetings today - and hopefully will keep up with logging a bit better ;)
