Easy Walk in a local Medway cemetery

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESOne of my walking buddies is a genealogist, and she reminded me that cemeteries are favorite haunts for those who are pursuing information about their family histories. Besides the documentation of births and births, cemeteries hold so many hidden, untold stories that may never be known.

For me, there is something so peacefully haunting about cemeteries, especially places that contain hundreds of years of memories. I wandered the paved roadway through this cemetery in Medway, MA, founded in 1750, in the early morning. As we ended our walk we were surprised by several bluebirds flitting among the branches of a huge tree. The more we watched, the more birds we saw. A wonderful New England summer morning.
