Finishing up my recap of the trip Dustin and I took to Savannah with my favorite part: Bonaventure Cemetery. As odd as it may seem to some of you, I find historic cemeteries quite peaceful and being a sucker for old landscapes find them to be beautiful. When we visited Bonaventure I knew very little about it’s history and while we were there I didn’t take the time to read literature but rather took in the sights. I am often guilty of doing this on vacations, not much of a “history buff” so I tend to just enjoy. We quickly picked up on reoccurring themes and later still being interested, I read about it’s past. We noticed many Jewish headstones as well as Confederate plot markers and after a Google search found out the cemetery’s largest group burials include war veterans (WW1 &WW2) various religious faiths and the Order of Railroad Conductors. There’s more information on the group burials here.
Cemetery closed us in so we had to escape by jumping the fence which proved to be a little tricky.

The quiet stroll around the cemetery snapping photos and hanging with my babe was very pleasant. We were going to take a ghost tour on our trip but didn’t end up being able to squeeze it in, didn’t really need to anyways after walking through a huge cemetery!
HAPPY -FLASHBACK- FRIDAY
