This week I returned to the Wilmington, North Carolina region. It was a short trip, cut even shorter by unexpected illness but I was determined not to miss beautiful Oakdale Cemetery.
A storm brewed in the distance causing overcast skies-not the best lighting for photos in an area ripe with vegetation but I think I captured a few nice images.
In the center of this photo is Nancy Martin’s cross-shaped marker. This is one of my favorite graves at Oakdale. If you recall, Nance was buried in a cask of alcohol after dying at sea on a business trip with her brother.
I was still unable to find Civil War spy Rose Greenhow’s grave even though I thought I knew its general location.
Maybe next time.
