Since Bonaventure Cemetery was a huge visual experience for Randy and me, I hope I can convey that to you. As many cemeteries as he and I have traipsed through together, this has to be the eeriest, and at the same time one of the most beautiful.
I have googled the cemetery to find out about the ghosts and famous people buried there. We didn't see the graves of Johnny Mercer and Conrad Aiken. We were driving slowly on unpaved roads, snapping these pictures.
Our AAA book warned us not to go to this cemetery alone, and if we were to get out of the car, to lock the doors. Apparently there are more things in the cemetery than ghosts. We chose to go at nine in the morning, for this reason. There were cemetery workers trimming trees at this time, which gave us a sense of security. We did not get out of the car due to the warning and that there are so many bushes and trees, and we read that there are also snakes.
Enough with the warnings! Enjoy the ride...................It's a beautiful cemetery.
