Tombstones From Long Ago Surfacing on S.F. Beach
Strong winds and shifting sands have uncovered an eerie reminder of San Francisco's past: discarded gravestones and broken tomb markers used decades ago to shore up the Ocean Beach seawall...Some were used as breakwaters. Pieces of others were used to line the gutters of Haight-Ashbury's Buena Vista Park. Some gravestones were used to build the seawall along the Great Highway. Large tombs and crypts were dumped into San Francisco Bay.
"Large tombs and crypts were dumped into the San Francisco Bay." OMG, can you imagine checking this out on the ocean floor? I so need to learn to scuba dive.
In the meantime, I hope to get out there and see the tombstones this weekend!
