Friday Serendipity


Ever seen a gravemarker like this one?

Proving yet again that you’ll find genealogy in the unlikeliest of places….. we were driving the road from Te Anu in New Zealand’s South Island to Milford Sound. At a pull-off along the road, I spotted this…..

This road cuts right through the heart of a humungous granite mountain and this tunnel took 20 years to build……. I’ll bet there were several accidents and many deaths. Standing and looking through the trees at the magnificent view and then turning to this marker…………well, it was sobering.
