Bonaventure Cemetery

I love to explore old cemeteries and imagine the stories behind the stones. Bonaventure is the Victorian (and later) cemetery that was featured in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It was still cleaning up from the damage of Hurricane Matthew from about a month before our visit and parts of it were blocked off, but the beauty was still there.

Although I love the beauty of old cemeteries, I do not want to be buried in one. I want my ashes scattered in a mountain river or stream, to eventually make their way to the sea. That’s the final journey I think that I would like to take when the time comes.
