This has been a winter of record cold spells and record snowfall. On February 1 and February 28, our intrepid Island Institute Fellow, Jessi Duma, skied out to the cemetery atop three feet of snow, and captured these images. (Click on each image to enlarge it so you can see Jessi's tracks and other details like shells, a dove, and the sun on the stones.)
The cemetery committee met by telephone over the winter because, with no propane delivered to the island in months, there is no heat in the GCIHS Cranberry House. The tree that fell in a November storm will be removed when the weather permits. We are gearing up for fund raising events and tours in the summer when, presumably, the snow will have melted. In the meantime, think Spring, and enjoy the stillness and beauty Jessi's photos convey.
