Buried At Sea

Destin has long been known as the World's Luckiest Fishing Village and a good portion of Destin residents make their living from the Gulf.

Watching her, it's easy to understand why the sea is compared to a woman.

She can be serene, quiet and calm one minute

And almost instantly, can change into a raging, overpowering tempest.

Those who make their living from the water know the risks they take every time they leave the dock.

There are two monuments in the Destin Cemetery placed in remembrance of those lost at sea.

The names and dates of each person have been carved into the monument and remain as a reminder of those who gave their lives to the sea.

And because so many others have a undeniable pull to the sea, they've chosen to be buried there.

Their names are also listed on the monuments.

I'm always fascinated when I see these monuments.

Whether by choice or by accident - the sea is a beautiful place for your remains to rest.
