Today, I finally got a chance to get to these historic cemeteries in Half Moon Bay and take pictures. There are two adjoining, Pilarcitos Cemetery and Odd Fellows. You can't go into Pilarcitos Cemetery, but the white picket fence was low, and it's small, so it was easy to take photos. I hope to use these for future paintings in the ghost series.

Both cemeteries are overgrown and no longer used. Pilarcitos said it quit taking new "residents" in 1923. This was my first experience actually in a graveyard. It was quite peaceful.
