    Swan Point Cemetery

    by luciano Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: By the way, I found that the Swan Point Cemetery is a very nice place for spending a couple of hours in a quiet afternoon. (Oh, do you think I sound weird? It might be... Did I say I love Lovecraft's horror stories?)

    Mermaid at the WaterFire Festival

    by Geoff_Wright Updated Jan 20, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We felt very sorry for this poor Mermaid. She was attracting quite a crowd at the Water Fire Festival, and it was quite a chilly evening, with just a hint of rain in the air.

    H.P.Lovecraft's grave

    Fondest memory: And here he is, at the Swan Point Cemetery. 'I am Providence', he says in his epitaph. Such a small gravestone for such a great writer...
