Good Cemetary Fences


Beaufort, North Carolina

I went to the cemetery in Beaufort searching for several weird and unusual graves.  I didn't find them.
But to not come away empty handed I got the Beaufort Cemetery fence for Good Fences.

How would you like to have to paint this fence?  Notice the drip marks on the sidewalk.

Check out TexWisGirl's GOOD FENCES for more fence fotos.

I like the variation in heigh of the fence. Makes it more venerable by still using normal material.

That is a fence you can't miss when passing by. Must have been painted recently, it looks so clean and bright.

A great fence John, looks like it is in the process of being painted, and no I am not putting my hand up for the job.

...with you pointing out the drops of paint on the walk, reminds me of Tom Sawyer.

Nice find John.. there would be a lot more paint on the sidewwalk if I had been painting! Shame you didn't find what you were looking for.

That is one interesting fence. I like finding stories and unusual gravestones too! I posted a second comment, not sure if my first went through.

Great fence! I think I'd pull a Tom Sawyer when it came to painting it, though.

John, the eastern Sierras are GORGEOUS in the fall, especially October. I took 2 days off school one year and we spent 4 days there (actually, 2 were driving days...)...It is well worth it!

What a lovely fence. I like the top on it :)

You did find a great looking and "unusual" fence. The varying heights of the posts is quite fascinating.

cemeteries are usually great places to get some photos... man... that is a lot of tiny spindly bits to paint.....
