I love old barns and this was a cool one right across from one of the little country cemeteries.
Again, nothing. My husband suggested we take a drive to Hudson Lake to see where my family had once lived. So we reluctantly left the cemetery and headed down the road. The funny thing was that there was no lake at Hudson Lake....at least none that we could see. We turned around and were headed home when my husband asked if I wanted to try one more time. (We both had walked just about the whole cemetery already). I started to say no but I was so disappointed at not finding them that I wanted to give it one more try.
Lucky and I were walking through the cemetery checking out all of the older stones more carefully. Many were very hard even impossible to read. My husband was talking to our daughter on the phone. He had asked her to say a prayer for me because he knew how much it meant to me.
A couple of the cemeteries were these little country places tucked away in the middle of nothing. I am sure there are probably thousands of these cemeteries around the world. It was fun just checking out the dates and names. We tried to think about how life was when they were living in this area. I really enjoyed this. I did learn a few things though. 1st be sure to wear comfortable shoes as many of these cemeteries are on hillsides...very hard walking. Also, make sure you use the restroom prior to walking the cemetery as there are no restrooms there. I also learned that it is best to look at cemeteries during the week and during working hours. If you need to look something up or talk to someone about the cemetery, you will get more help during the week.
Tomorrow we are taking it easy. We are really tired. We are heading over to the Buffalo, New York area next. We have a couple of places to check out on the way - one more cemetery and Lake Erie.
