2015, Canada, Weather Wonders - fog at Cape Spear
Cape Spear is on the Avalon Peninsula, Newfoundland (near St John's) and is the easternmost point of North America. The lighthouse is the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador. It was built in 1836, with a new tower built in 1955 using the active light from the original tower. Generations of the Cantwell family of lightkeepers lived at Cape Spear for 150 years, from 1847 to 1997.

for lighthouses and/or windmills


  1. I thought the weather wonders set was so cool. Love the meteorology symbols.

  2. Very atmospheric and of course the name of Avalon is always a bit mysterious.

  3. Glorious colors on this stamp.

    I've missed this week as I couldn't not find any lighthouse stamps that I had not used before.

  4. Such an amazing picture on this stamp!
