Bonaventure Cemetery – Savannah, Georgia

Hello Monday!  Here we are at the beginning of another week.  It is pretty amazing that the weeks go by so quickly.  Do you think they will stop doing that if I ask nicely?

Since it’s Monday, it is time for some pictures and a bit of quiet to start your week.  Mountain Mondays will be back soon, but for now, we have some pictures to share from our On the Road adventures.

The photo at the top was of the Super Moon Saturday night.  Since this last occurred eighteen years ago, Mr. Bunkycooks got up in the middle of the night to take this shot at 4 am.  I would have liked to tell you it was taken at the cemetery in Savannah because that would have been totally cool, but it was not.  It was outside our house and I was still in bed.

The rest of the photos are from the Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.  You might remember that we were just in Savannah with Go Savor, so we decided to have a hot date and stop by on the way out of town to take some pictures.  We sure know how to do date night right! 😉

This cemetery is built on what was once Bonaventure Plantation and dates back to 1846.   It is spectacular to visit with all of the oak trees and unusual monuments (especially if you are into cemeteries).  It sits on the bluff above the Wilmington River, just east of Savannah.

You might have heard of this cemetery since it was featured in the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”, which is based on events that occurred in Savannah in the 1980’s.  According to Wikipedia, “the title alludes to the hoodoo notion of “midnight”, the period between the time for good magic and the time for evil magic, and “the garden of good and evil,” which refers principally to Bonaventure Cemetery”.

My skin is crawling!  That’s some kind of spooky stuff to start your day!

Our visit to Bonaventure Cemetery reminded us of the people that have passed through this world.  Most importantly, never forget the men and women that gave their lives for the rest of us.

Enjoy your week!
