Field Trip

Kids from the local middle school making rubbings of gravestones in the Old Burial Ground last week.

A very nice lesson plan for a sunny October afternoon.

great photo, ronnie! what is that tantalizing pile of rocks? a memorial on an individual grave? reminds me a bit of the ads i've seen for real estate in ireland: "ancient pile of stones, formerly a dwelling."

what were you doing out taking photos? playing hooky on the glorious fall day?

Nice photo,

M.E. I have blogged about that pile of rocks before - it's the original cairn marking the graves of British soldiers who died in Fredericton. In this shot you can see both the modest little original cairn and the larger, cross-shaped memorial that was added much later.

Dave, I admit some of those kids looked awful shifty...
