Cemetery at Carter's Point, NB.

Epitaphs on gravestones; completed June 1999

This private cemetery is reached either through the door-yard of Bill Lennan or via the Woods Brothers Lane. It is on a hillside with full view of the river, looking south-west. As a result, the wind is generally strong. The cemetery is well tended.
