|Memorial statue at Union Cemetery, Georgetown, DE|
Last week Bill and I visited a new cemetery. I had six Find a Grave photo requests to fill. All the graves were located at the Union Cemetery in Georgetown, Delaware. I had never been to this cemetery before. This cemetery has now become one of my favorite cemeteries because of it's peacefulness.
Ironically it is located almost in the center of Georgetown, which is the county seat of Sussex County. To the far side is a Waste Management terminal. At times during our visit, several of the Waste Management trash truck were pulling in and dumping their loads for the day. I happen to take this video early yesterday morning, when the only sounds were of a lone bird chirping somewhere in the trees surround the cemetery and only one blast from a nearby train.
We couldn't find any of the graves that had photo requests. Although the day was sunny, the temperatures were still down in the low 40's. With the occasional wind whipping through the cemetery, it got a little uncomfortable touring through the cemetery. However, this is a grand old cemetery with many graves (over 1,000) so I will definitely be back when the weather takes a turn for the better.
Some may think I'm weird for getting pleasure out of touring cemeteries fulfilling Find a Grave photo requests. I understand that. Some may think I don't have much of a life when I could instead be spending my time chasing after the current social scene of keeping the local restaurants in business. But folks, this is what I enjoy doing (and Bill too).
