During our long Thanksgiving break we went to Tybee Island, Georgia. One of the places we had to visit was the Bonaventure Cemetery outside of Savannah. It is a huge cemetery with graves stretching back to the 18th century. I took a lot of pictures and I thought I would share some of my favorites.









I wish I had taken the time to write down the information on the various graves and monuments, but I was just too busy taking pictures.

    Lovely! There is a lot of interesting history and beautiful statuary in the world’s cemetaries. When I was in college, the local cemetary was a quiet great place to escape from a surfeit of room mates; I’d go spend a quiet afternoon reading tombstones, and trying to get a sense of the people who went before. 🙂

      I’ve always enjoyed cemeteries, but most of the ones I had access to growing up were pretty dull, and certainly nothing like Bonaventure. We also went to a different cemetery in Savannah itself and while the graves were older everything was much more utilitarian.
