A visit

Saturday morning I headed out to do my weekly errands. It was a beautiful morning as I headed down the road. As I approached the cemetery where my dad is buried I stopped in the middle of the road (since no other cars were around) and took a picture looking up the hill.

This is a rather small cemetery and the section in the front by the road is pretty old. I've never walked through to see just how old some of those headstones are but you can tell by looking at them that they're quite old.

Since it's been a while since I've stopped and I wasn't in any big hurry I pulled in and drove up to the back of the second section.  The back side of the headstone has his last name on it so it makes it easy to spot from the road.



 I've always liked the view from here.

That is a nice view Ann! I also really like the first photo...there's something about a cemetery. Kind of peaceful and serene I think.

beautiful view from the car and also from where you were standing. there is a peaceful aura in cemeteries that I like. beautiful head stone to., my parents are buried in one that is perpetual care and the headstones have to be flat in the ground so they can mow over them. it is beautiful but not like this is.

Great view and looks SO peaceful... I love to visit old cemeteries and look at the gravestones... There are a lot of old stones in Cades Cove.... Back then, many babies died in infancy--and it's always sad to see their little grave markers.

Hugs,
Betsy

Your first photo includes the graves of my youngest sister, Mary Jo, and the two oldest Bender babies. I was just out there before I went to NJ. Those are some "verdant pastures".
