Highgate Cemetery

We both had a laugh this morning as we wandered through the cemetery how we’re celebrating our life together walking through a cemetery, but we both love the place and I’m sharing the pictures with you all.

We’ve been walking like fools out here. I’ve done about 6+ miles on my Fitbit and God knows how many floors. Climbing stairs in London is got to be the way these people stay fit. At home I do about 4-5000 steps, but here I’m betting on 16,000+ before I collapse is a near death like sleep.

Last night I slept almost 11 hours! My usual is around 4 to 6 hours, with 6 being a good night’s sleep for me. I may have to move here to continue sleeping. Of course last night’s sleep may have some jet lag and lack of sleep on the flight over to add to the mix. but it was great sleeping so well.

The first tomb that we see at the east side of Highgate.
