Graveyard

Posting a grave-site from Marblehead cemetery in northern Ohio, which just happens to be my father’s grandfather (my great grandfather) and also a Captain. How about that? In case you were wondering why on earth do I love the sea? Well now, it’s in my blood. And since this is the month of blood, ghosts and dead people what better than the site of granite stones to keep them there.

I’m participating in the challenge from photographer Cee. Find her below; click on the link.

My family and I visited this cemetery and other sites in this northern coastal region recently while I was in Ohio. There are many stories to be told from the past which give us a sense of who we are and maybe why we love what we do. Follow me here on theivorytide.com for more posts about this region and the fabulous lighthouse that rests on the rocky point.

    I love the lineage as an explanation to your love for the sea. Maybe I’m a descendent of an old ship captain. I do have a great, great grandmother with the last name of Melvin…. 🙂

    Ahoy! Suzie sent me. Love the history and the photo of the gravestone. Landlubber that I am, I still love the sea (or lake, or river, or stream) and will be spending my thanksgiving on the seashores of Cape Cod. Possibly may see an old ghost whaling ship hidden in the fog.
