Last night when I was out with the yarners (including [livejournal.com profile] theotheramanda who was in town!) I forced [livejournal.com profile] grateblue2 to take pictures of the Granary Burial Ground downtown. Now with new and improved pictures!

Like I said, it's very historical:

And Paul Revere is there:

Unfortunately I don't have the pictures from her yet, so I'll have to recycle this old one:

I'm a fan of graveyards. It's not just a Boston thing, [livejournal.com profile] chrssybr and I once walked up a huge hill on perhaps the hottest day of summer to visit the graveyard we could see from her dorm window at UW. We're clearly nuts.

Well, the little affection I had for graveyards really had a chance to blossom here in Boston. The graveyards here are just so much... cooler! Older, more historical, and honestly who can resist those old-style winged skulls on gravestones?

The Boston area has an abundance of really old gravestones which are endlessly fascinating to me. And a great many of them are on the Freedom Trail. I keep reminding myself that I need to get some more gravestone pictures before I leave Boston and return to the modern gravestones of the PacNW. Not half as exciting.
