The day was too lovely to spend indoors.
David suggested a ride to the country
to check out an old cemetery that had
been found when clearing some land.
After a short walk through these
pretty dried grasses, we came
A small, neglected little
spot, hosting the remains
of a long lost family.
Some of the stones dated to the 1800's.
Most were unreadable.
The cemetery has been marked off and
hopefully, will be cleaned up
and properly preserved.
We stopped at the Koran cemetery on our way
and found this marker for Mary Brown,
born in 1797! She was the oldest
person we came across that day.
(I did not notice the small American flag
on the ground behind the marker until
I looked at these pictures.
I would surely have picked it up.)
Visiting old cemeteries and
reading the history found in them
is one of my favorite things to do.
However, on this day,
I felt a little melancoly for some reason.
It was a good reminder of how important it
is to live my life, making each day count.
Looking forward to more
lovely spring days to be out and about!
