There is something special about visiting an old cemetery, but the Bonadventure has to be at the top of the list. The colors, shadows, and filtered light all contribute to create a magical quality.
You can almost feel the spirits peeking out midst the trees.
This angel stands guard over a special soul.
The gates to the family plots pose a special welcome.
Time has infused earthen tones into the cold stone.
The soft sounds of water from the river can be heard if one is quite enough.
Lovingly engraved stones and monuments erected in tribute to those once loved.
The Mercer family plot. The bench engraved with the names of Johnny Mercer songs.
Angels shrouded with Spanish Moss hold constant vigils.
As in a Benediction, I find another angel bidding us farewell. It is a treat to see this special place again. Every visit brings nuances not seen before. I can hardly wait until our next visit.
Just touching base with your Blog. Wil and I were just in Savannah a few weeks ago!!! Awesome! We helped his stepdad move so had no RV with us. Toured Mercer House, ate at Lady & Sons (Paula Deen's place) and walked the town. Missed the cemetary; looks fantastic! Cheers!
