I had a little bit of time yesterday afternoon, so I paid a visit to the Veterans’ Cemetery in Boscawen, NH, just west of Concord. Had a little bit of personal business that took me up that way, so I stopped on my way back to Manchester. I’d never been there, and I had been told that it was worth a visit. And it was – I was there for about a half-hour, just walking around. It isn’t very big; I’d say right now it is maybe 10 acres, and there is a lot of open space. That makes sense, I suppose, as New Hampshire is a small state. But it truly is beautiful to walk through. Plus we still have good color here, which is why I took these photos. It’s actually starting to pop more, as you can see in the photos posted below. In addition to grave markers, there are columbariums everywhere. I counted 40 of them, each holding between 20 and 30 urns. And there are a number that are empty.
I saw only a few people while I was walking around, and I don’t know where any of the staff was. And I wasn’t the only one walking. There were maybe 4 of us total, and it was nice to just enjoy the quiet.
Sometimes we need that.
