Ghost tours

 

"Beneath, in the churchyard, lay the dead,
In their night encampment on the hill,
Wrapped in the silence so deep and still,"
Paul Revere's Ride - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If you ever in Boston invest the $40.00 and take the "Ghost Tours" it's well worth it and amazing! This is a photo of the very graveyard that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote about in his famous poem. The old North Church can be seen from here, really on a short walk away. In the evening there is always (no matter what season) a mist hanging over the graveyard and some people claimed to have seen white shadows floating around the area. Cool!

What a great shot and haunting poem. Did you check out that gravestone in the pic?

I took the photo, I loved spend two hours just reading the tomb stones. They were amazing and interesting.

Oh I'd soooooo love to do that tour. I love reading gravestones and imagining what life must have been like for them. And misty places are the best to see things in.
