Well, today was our wedding anniversary. (Actually it wasn't, yesterday was our actual anniversary, but instead of doing anything special, yesterday was spent taking the cats for their annual check up and shots, something which hardly counts as romantic.)
So, when today dawned bright and clear we decided to have a day out. Normally Wednesday is my documentation day down at Dows but I've postponed it to tomorrow.
Instead we drove over to Rutherglen where we had lunch in Valentine's Bakehouse, and then on to Carlyle Cemetery just outside Rutherglen.
Once in goldrush times it must have been a bustling sort of place, but now it's a slightly forlorn place in a paddock on the banks of the Murray.

My main interest was the Chinese cremation towers, brick built, but slightly different in style in the ones in Beechworth Cemetery
