Girl in Bonaventure Cemetery

Tombstone of a young woman in Bonaventure Cemetery

I have many pictures to share with you of the Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah  Though touted by the tourism industry as that famous place where John Berendt shared martinis by gravesites in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, I think no writer has described it as justly as John Muir in A Thousand Miles Walk :

"Bonaventure is called a graveyard, a town of the dead, but the few graves are powerless in such a depth of life. The rippling of living waters, the song of birds, the joyous confidence of flowers, the calm, undisturbable grandeur of the oaks, mark this place of graves as one of the Lord’s most favored abodes of life and light."
