Abandoned Graveyard

As promised, I have photos of the abandoned graveyard that I discovered the other day. I went back on Wednesday to take photos so that I could share.

I also tried taking a few photos of myself (per request of many friends) but it just was not working out. Even though the previous day I had absolutely no problems wandering/laying around the graveyard, this time I kept tripping on hidden head-stones and putting various limbs right into thorny bushes and what I believe to be stinging nettles. I put my thumb right into one, and instantaneously felt a sharp pain, and within seconds 3 white bumps appeared =(

They didn't go away for a good hour after that. Also, the spot where I chose to lay down (the exact spot I laid down on the other day, mind you) was crawling with ants. So, needless to stay, I felt somewhat un-wanted, and chose to depart much earlier than I had anticipated. Perhaps the ghosts didn’t want me taking their photo, who knows?

I walked back to where I’m staying from there, which was about 2 miles. I stopped along the way to check out the beach (finally!) because I found the road that leads down to it. When I arrived, however, I realized why no one ever goes there. It’s not much of a beach really; more like a small cliff. The rocks were littered with old beer bottles and covered in cobwebs; not really the ideal beach hangout unless you’re a gang of bored 16 year-olds with nowhere else to go.

I only stayed at the “beach” for about 15 minutes, then continued on my journey home, which took probably another hour and 1/2 or so. Even though I do want to explore the town some more, I didn’t want to stray too far off of the streets that I know so that I don’t get lost. Also, I’ve realized that most of the streets that I haven’t seen are just full of houses, as any typical suburb would be. But I did take a few more photos.

After arriving home, my boss called to let me know that he had picked me up a device so that I can have the internet at my place (yay!) which he dropped off shortly after. (It’s just a little usb drive, it kind of looks like something Apple would make) It requires a SIM card, and I thought the packaging for the SIM card was awesome, so I wanted to share. (I enjoy blocks of color, what can I say?) Even though I now have the internet at my place, it takes forever to upload photos with blogger, so I think I'll just have to stick with posting during my lunch breaks.

I’m sure I’ll have more photos and stories soon.
