We are now at Fort Rosecrans National cemetery, located on scenic Point Loma.
This cemetery has a very special meaning for my cousins and I. Each time I go back to San Diego, we go to pay our respects to not only our grandparents but also the parents of my cousin Bill’s wife.
There couldn’t have been a more beautiful spot for a final resting place. The whole cemetery looks over the Pacific ocean.
Enjoy and quietly refelect:
A California registered landmark marker that tells a brief history of the cemetery.
A Spanish-American war veteran and his slightly different gravestone design.
Reflections on eternity overlooking the blue Pacific ocean.
On one side of the cemetery is an obelisk marker. This is the U.S.S. Bennington monument. The boiler of this vessel exploded in the harbor on 21 July,1905, killing around 60 men.
