Southampton

We went to check out the the new stone for our plots that I purchased. The black granite looks good. Our plots are in Southampton Cemetery, Long Island, New York look and looks nice in the shade of a tree by Henry Road. We plan to have green burials when the time comes. After that we drove to the North Fork of Long Island and ate lunch at the charming little town of Greenport. After lunch we took two ferries to and from Shelter Island and drove back towards home to Manhattan via the South Fork. While visiting the Elizabeth Morton NWR I was not happy to see that during the last couple of years people have taking it upon themselves to hand feed the wildlife. It is not natural for them to eat strange foods and could harm them. Many birds, including the turkeys came up to us expecting food. People don’t feed the Ospreys. The young are almost fledged and the parents were calling to them to fly off the nest.

    The cemetery looks very peaceful in the first photo. I like the beach views, it looks lovely there 🙂

    I liked the photo of the barn. It took me a while to realize some irrigation was taking place. Your stone reminded me of a funny story about my mother. She had a similar stone placed when my dad died, but she refused to have her birth date incised into it. As she said, “I wouldn’t want anyone just wandering through to know how old I am.”

      That’s funny. I briefly thought about leaving off my birthdate. It doesn’t matter. You all know now :-).
