01: Ernie arrived all dressed for Halloween! Unfortunately he was a little late getting here and so missed the festivities. We threw the little fella a party all to himself...
02: ...He soon got into the spirit of things...
03: ...A little too heavily!
04: St. John's is famous for its pubs. Ernie took to the Duke of Duckworth like one of the regulars...
05: ...and was soon making friends with the local celebrities! Here he is with comedian Rick Mercer (http://www.rickmercer.com)
06: It's a tradition for visitors to The Rock to be "screeched in". This is a ceremony involving singing, dancing, drinking and kissing a cod fish! Here's Ernie getting screeched in at Christians on George Street!
07: At first poor Ernie was worried about being eaten by the cod but after a while he had drunk enough to think she was quite pretty.
08: Next morning was a beautiful November day, so Ernie braved his hangover and went downtown to pay his respects at the War Memorial.
09, 10: Then he took a walk to look at the colourful houses...
11: ...before stopping in Harbourside Park to look at the ships and admire the view of Signal Hill.
12: The next day Ernie wanted to see Signal Hill in more detail. It was quite a chilly day but we took him out to look at more ships and then walk up to the top of the hill.
13: Here's Ernie at the top of Signal Hill! This is Cabot Tower, where in 1901 Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal from England.
14: Looking back out over the city...
15: ...and across the Narrows to Fort Amherst.
16: While we were up at Cabot Tower, Ernie met Schooner the Newfoundland dog!
17: Over there is Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America. That's the Atlantic Ocean, Ernie!
18: Ernie wanted to go to Cape Spear next, and he got his wish!
19: The famous lighthouse has been at Cape Spear since 1836!
20: Where will he go next?
