It looks much larger from the ground, the west end is so far away from Signal Hill that you can barely see it from there; and that angle always shortens the whole harbour and city!

Thanks for that photo Surreal! I have always tried and failed to adequately capture that streetwall on 12 Avenue!

A cruise ship just left St. John's. I took a few screen grabs of a couple of different live cams to share with you how it looks when a large vessel leaves through the Narrows.

^^ It's really cool to watch from the hills! I went to right where the bottom camera shows (the bottom right corner with the people there .. yeah I was one of them lol) and the hills have people all over them watching and on the other side .. when the ship starts to pass through all the people on the ship cheer and everyone waves and the people on the hills cheer and wave back lol even some cars from the other side on that road were honking as they left. quite the neat experience

That is awesome! That ship must have azimuth thrusters, that is some amazing maneuvering capability.

I need to book a flight to St. John's! SignalHillHiker contributions, both historical and visual, really have spiked my curiosity about the place!

Check again. Those are 2014 (I did that too). The only really big one left this year is Carnival Legend on Oct. 7th.

Anyway, some of my shots of the ship leaving (I was with jeddy on the hill).







Here you can see the people along the hilltop.
