These are from this past Wednesday. We went up to Commerce and down to visit a couple of cemeteries (City Cemetery #1 & #6, to be specific) and then when it started getting dark walked toward downtown a ways before heading home.
The rest of the pix are after the break, to save those uninterested from having to scroll past them all.
(Oh, & I apologize in advance for the wonky formatting. Blogger hates to properly wrap text. Next time I'll just leave 'em all centered.)
TAPS people in here, eh? Apparently, we watch that show too much, 'cause the kids and I reflexively glanced in the van as we went past, hoping to glimpse some EMF readers or something.
This is...well, I'm really not sure what it is. But it involves a mural, a console television, and a couch.
Surely pretty streetlights along the main thoroughfare make up for decades of ignoring an entire part of the town! Right? And look--there's a banner! Welcome The Day! So, apparently New London's paper is relocating here. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought of that. Greg?)
This is the view down one of the main "streets" of City Cemetery #1. This is kind of a perfect illustration of why I love cemeteries. Lots of trees, interesting things to read and see, and pretty much no other people, ever.
Guenther House Restaurant. I found the plot interesting. There were a couple of very young folks buried there, as of course seems to be the norm for the 19th century, but it's somehow always jolting to see in the plot of a very well-to-do family. The best doctors money can buy won't save everyone.
A better pic of the moon behind tree branches, even if the contrast isn't the greatest. You might have to enlarge it to see the branches, but this has a much better horror-novel look to it than the other one.
That's all for today. I'll put up more over the next couple of days. The rest are better, having all been taken during full daylight.
