Organic Enchilada Will Understand

Bethany, I took this for you.

I wish you could have seen this the way I first saw it my first night in Bermuda -- up close, in the dark. We were driving around the island. A full moon was peeking through a sky full of clouds. Then I saw this cemetery with the ocean glimmering in the background. It was hauntingly beautiful. I felt like I was in a scene of a pirate movie. I yelled out loud "I need a tripod and a wide angle lens!!!" But no one was listening, except maybe a few ghosts. It was magazine worthy, I tell you.

I have to say that Bermuda is full of the most beautiful old cemeteries, the prettiest I've ever seen, and I didn't get a good shot of any of them -- I was always in a fast moving car.

But you get the gist of it, don't you?

Oh, my gosh, I love it. The crooked headstones, life in the distance, evidence of weather everywhere... So cool! Funny, I never really thought of Bermuda as a hot spot for breathtaking cemeteries. If I ever get there, I will be sure to pay attention. Thanks for thinking of me!

Incidentally, I was going to venture up to Park City on Monday, but didn't have your directions on how to get to the spot with me. I guess it will be cool to go when the fall colors are out. Yeah!
