Folks, both men and women, just stop in for chat and coffee. A real friendly gathering place, home-town atmosphere, good people.
Tristan had a short day at school so I picked him up instead of him riding the bus for an hour to get home. We visited the local thrift shop and I picked up a few bargain items to create more costumes for my front yard scary gathering.
Late this afternoon, on our way to the 'big town', we stopped in Coloma. I have lived in the area for several years and have never visited the Coloma Cemetery. We were on our way to a Haunted House and I decided it would a great time to visit the small local graveyard. I love graveyards, the older the better. You know about Coloma, right? The location of Sutter's Mill? The place where gold was first discovered in California and started the whole rush West? There's interesting history here, and this Cemetery is lovely, a wonderful resting place.
Several beautiful iron 'privacy fences' encircle family plots.
I plan to go back and spend more time wandering and reading.
Does anyone else enjoy visiting old cemeteries?
No pictures of the Haunted House. The High School put it on and it was fun. Dark, spooky and lots of strobe lights, way beyond my photographic skills.
A good day and I blogged twice this month.
