A scenic drive with the dead.

.

Part of our leisurely drive down the coast last week included a cruise through Laurel Hill Cemetery.

.

.

And while that might sound a little odd or off the beaten track..

.

.

I assure you we weren’t the only ones. It’s a beautiful spot and very popular with walkers as well.

.

.

I’ve always found cemeteries to be peaceful and serene places, and this one was simply gorgeous.

.

.

Meticulously maintained…

.

.

This section with perfectly trimmed hedges was especially nice.

.

.

Did I mention the dearly departed have a water view?

.

.

There were hundreds of fascinating old gravestones dating back to the 1700’s and a few modern memorials…. that to me, looked out of place.

.

.

Some of the decorative iron fencing was fabulous. For when you really don’t like your neighbors… living or dead.

.

.

Yes, if I lived closer…

.

.

I’d be taking frequent strolls with the dearly departed.
