While I was visiting my parents, we did similar things. One day we went to a museum and on the other 2 we went to cemeteries.
Cemetery 1: Kincardine - Goal - to find the "unknown sailor" grave. In November 1913 a huge storm hit Lake Huron. Many ships were lost. Near Kincardine over 250 lives were lost and only 50-some bodies were recovered. 5 washed up on the shores of Kincardine beaches and were never identified. My dad and I spent about 30 minutes wandering around, (I said it was like we were playing "Where's Waldo" or wondered if people thought we were playing disrespectful Pokemon-Go as Dad pulled out his phone to look and see if we could find where it was). In the end, we didn't find it. An adventure for another time.
Cemetery 2: A tiny one called Port Bruce I believe. Our goal was to find the 3 Smith sisters who build the cottage beside my parents. Tiny cemetery. We found some Smiths but not the Smiths we were looking for. Again we lost at Where's Waldo.
However, we did see some cool things. A few samples from Port Bruce:
|Although hard to read, I love old stones|
|I personally don't want a stone, but if I did, this would be it.|
|Never had seen strips like this to put the stones on|
|If you are going adventuring, look the part. My father (I sometimes pretend I am adopted).|
|Loved the caption but said out loud "I hope not!"|
