After spending the morning with the other urban sketchers down at the lighthouse, I headed to the other side of the railway tracks.
Up the hill on the bluff over looking Puget Sound and the lighthouse beach is the Mukilteo Pioneer Cemetery. The view was fantastic now that the morning fog had burned off. Looking north up the sound was Whidbey Island on the left, the south tip of Camano Island (center) and Gedney Island (Hat Island) to the right.
The ccemetery was quite small but had headstones from the mid 1800's. William and Corenilla Hassard headstone was the most grand of the lot. As I was sketching it I noticed that Cornellia was born on my birth date, alas 80 years before me!
