Today, I hopped on my bike and took off for an afternoon of cruising Key West. After the beach, a stop at Flying Monkey for my favorite beverage, I headed toward home and found myself at the cemetery. You can tell a lot about the local families by the cemetery.
For instance, it was quite clear that the Spottswood family have a big presence in Key West. And they are the only plot that has landscaping.
And now I know where several streets get there name. Albury, Williams, White, Ashby, Peacon...and the list goes on and on. The headstone design has changed drastically since the turn of the century. I guess tree trunks were a popular design back then. I live on Fogarty Ave, there is bar and restaurant with the same name. I'm guessing there must be money there.

|There is a cemetery within a cemetery. I guess the fence is to keep the protestants out.|
|Toppino Family Mausoleum. There are a pair of iron gates in the front.|
|Inside the Toppino mausoleum is nicer than my apartment!|
|"Ahhh, we can make a path here, just pave around it!"|
|I found the Jewish cemetery too. Had to come home and|
google about all the rocks laying everywhere.
