Ooky Spooky Squidge

Is it odd that I take walks in foggy cemeteries with my family.

Is it odd that I buy my kid a balloon to keep her busy while I photograph spooky foggy cemeteries?

Aah well, what can you do.  I like my ooky spooky foggy cemetery walks!

Also a comment for my Uncle Wayne- I found Sue Coo and she uuuh has a lot  more than coo now!

    Wow! If I lived near a cemetery that looked like that, you would definitely find me walking there.

    The balloon is such an unexpected splash of color!

    I love the contrast! I don’t think it’s odd at all… but I’m not the best judge. I allow my children to play with Freud and Jung dolls. I’m already saving for their therapy fund.

    Not odd at all – we used to walk TB round Nunhead cemetary all the time when we lived down that way.

    Nah, not odd in the slightest.
    Weird, yes, but not odd.

    Only joking
    Cemetries are lovey and peaceful for walking round.

    Those photos are spectacular. I love the contrast of the colors between the path, the cemetary, the leaves, and your daughter’s balloon. I hope you have a wonderful ex-pat Thanksgiving!

    I can think of worse places for you to walk near you!! Nowt wrong with nice scenery and a lack of scally’s!

    I agree with all the above. They are such peaceful places and often very beautiful. My grandad looked after the church grounds and gardens, so I spent many hrs playing there and I have so many happy memories of it…..is that wierd?

    Mike and I used to go to Rural Cemetery all the time when Chris was little. We’d go for walks, rollerblade, etc. I always loved the cemetery for walks. I loved the peacefulness of it.

    I like walking through old cemetries too. The church in the village Mr B was born in is 14th Century and has some really gnarled old grave stones in it. It’s gorgeous.

    That green balloon fits right in! Was that by chance… or did you choose the color?

    Nah, not odd to me at all. If you ever visit Whitby abbey and the graveyard surrounding it you would understand why I think that. It has the most breathtaking views. Lovely photos by the way.

    I don’t live close enough to a graveyard to go walking in it often, but when I do get the chance I find that it is one of the most peaceful places that you can go walk in. Unfortunately here in sunny South Africa we don’t have as much fog so I haven’t realy had the opportunity to go and take foggy graveyard pics.
    The pics with your daughter is beautiful. Now that I know your blog I will visit much more often. Bye.
