Mount Auburn Cemetery

with 3 comments

IMG_8933My sister is in town this weekend visiting and we made the trip to Cambridge today to poke around and check out Mount Auburn Cemetery, which is as beautiful as advertised.

The forsythia, daffodils, cherries, azaleas, and rosebuds all blazed with color.  Who would have thought that such an oasis exists so close to downtown Boston?

We spent two hours in the cemetery.  Starting with Dorothea Dix‘s grave and then winding our way up to a towering view of downtown Boston.

Perhaps our biggest surprise was finding a grave with my sister’s name on it.  Let’s hope she lives the same 90+ years that woman did.

Lovely, peaceful, beautiful and stirring.  Definitely worth a visit, especially in the spring.

Blowing in the Wind

A couple of weekends ago Charity and I made a trip to the beaches of South County for the first time.  It was cold and beautiful with the bright sun and the chilly wind.  The sand was brilliant and worth seeing.
