Standing At Post

I am concluding my series from Beechwood Cemetery today. These two shots take in views of the newer section of the National Military Cemetery in the background.


These flags stand vigil over the section of Beechwood designated as a national cemetery for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

  9. A most interesting section. We have a national cemetery about 40 miles south of Ocala where I could be buried because of my naval service. We visited once and it was acres and acres of white crosses. Beautiful, and impressive and depressing all at the same time!

  17. so interesting, i really find it cool (not sure that is the right word i want there but i think you will know what i mean?) to see what folks get for remembering their loved one. love the buffalo, the flags, not sure i have seen that one, usually real flag but those look like ones that might last a while longer or do better with all the different weather conditions going on and the Sutton floral piece, that is so lovely!!
