A good portion of the last third of our driving tour was on Birmingham Road, a road well traveled by M on his way to and from work. It’s also the road we take when we go out for a country drive in the convertible, or at least take frequently on our way from one place to another if the road is on our way.
There’s a hill on Birmingham Road where we’ve stopped before to admire the view. Osborne Hill. It’s at the intersection of Birmingham Road and Country Club Road.

It was on this hill that General Howe and the British troops stopped for a tea break before continuing on to battle with Washington’s troops.
The tour eventually led us to the Birmingham-Lafayette Cemetery. I like cemeteries. They’re very peaceful places. This one was no exception.
