My family and I were recently on the Fundy Trail in New Brunswick where we visited an old “Sea Captains’ Burial Ground”.
This was one of the gravestones we found in the tiny, peaceful graveyard.
If this sea captain were alive today, he would be 200 years old!
“Hope reach beyond the bound of time
When what are now deplore
Shall rise in full immortal prime
And bloom to fade no more.”
(Hand tooled inscription near the bottom of the stone)
