Looking Back ~ Bellefontaine Cemetery

There are so many interesting people buried at this beautiful cemetery. I’ll be sharing more notables in posts when I get back from all my traveling but for now I’ll just show some of the monuments without the history…

Bellefontaine 104We are marveling that we missed so much “weather” on our travels and we are still thanking God for being safe and sound in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

We’ve had a nice Mother’s Day. We found out about an interesting law here in this part of the state. We don’t know if it’s the law all over the state but when we arrived for brunch at Duck’s Bar and Grille at 11:00 A.M. today we were considering having Mimosa’s with our Eggs Benedict. We were informed that the law stated no alcohol could be served before noon on Sundays. So there you have it. Today is the most humid day here since we arrived so we are enjoying just staying in with the air conditioning on. Katie started a meal in the crock pot this morning before we left for brunch and it is smelling real good right now. Tomorrow Katie scheduled massages for us and we are really looking forward to that.

We still do not have T.V. here at the apartment and I’ve been interested in some weather stories I’ve seen here and there. I hope you are safe where you are and that you are enjoying a lovely Mother’s Day at home or elsewhere.

  1. Absolutely beautiful would love to know the history! Yes that law has been in effect for quite a few years. Hope Katie can adjust to the humidity here in N.C., living near the coast is nice. Happy Mother’s Day to you Ellen, sounds like you are having a great one.

    • Hi Sue,
      Katie has lived here for a couple years so she knows what she’s getting into with the humidity. She comes and stays with us whenever Andrew leaves for deployments or long training sessions in another part of the country. She’ll be here for the fair share of this summer and then her and Andrew are moving to Washington so Andrew can get a degree…
      Thank you and I hope your day was good!

    • Well you are Mother Hen and that’s a good question. 🙂 I am flying back via Orlando, Florida. I meet Dear there (he has a conference) and then we fly home together from Orlando. Katie and Andrew will drive back sometime in August.

  2. Love your updates Ellen and so happy that you are having a much more relaxing time!! Interesting state law. Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day ….. so great that you can spend this time with your Katie!
