An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau
Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Wondering about the climate here in Accident, Maryland.

🌀    🌨    ☁️    🌧

There are three cemeteries in town that I walk around on my
morning walks.

This first one is small and is along the road.



I call this one the lower cemetery.


The third cemetery is the one at the top of the hill.


The oldest grave here is James Drane's from 1828.
and the oldest person I could find buried here is
Earl Wentz who died in February of 2019
and he was 103 years old.




The church you see in the picture above was located here at the cemetery.
but on August 23, 1901 it was struck by lightning and completely destroyed.
In April of 1903 another church was built but this time it was built
on the main road in town.


The cemetery is on Cemetery Road


which also has a doctors office.

That is quite a nice town to live in, the church is impressive with the spire. The cemetery is well laid out. Oldest headstone I have ever seen in the up dates to the late 1600's. Sounds like you liked your fast cars with that nice Corvette. Not sure I miss my old Mini now which was really nosy and fast, I posted a video on YouTube of it. I think you are lucky to live in such a nice area

How's the food in the Rolling Pin bakery? One of the main reasons I walk and do regular exercise is so I can enjoy desserts. I definitely have a sweet tooth.
Thank you for sharing photos of your town.

Skeeter - Food and baked goods are delicious at the Rolling Pin. I don't go there often because things are so good. πŸ˜€ Besides I like to bake!!
