Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery -- Post 395 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

1)  I visited my parents gravesite at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Point Loma in San Diego in January 2009.  It was a very clear day.  Here is the entrance to the cemetery from Catalina Boulevard on the west side of the street:

2)  My parents gravesite is through the entrance, then left to the first road to the left and several hundred yards down that road to a leaning tree:

3)  My parents gravesite (they were inurned) is one of the three in the foreground beside the road:

4)  The view to the west from the gravesite is toward the Pacific Ocean:

I took ore photos of gravestones in this cemetery, and I'll share some of them in the coming weeks.

Randy. It's such a beautiful site from that cemetery. Ron's parents, along with aunts, uncles and cousins are buried there. We make frequent trips to visit.
