On a visit to Baskemölla. Going from the road,
just south of Tjörnedala farm,
over a fence into a meadow with sheep.
They ignore us. Following a path in a forest grove.
Much genista. Through a stone wall.
In the 1850s cholera raged in Sweden.
In Baskemölla ten people died in September 1855 of the disease.
A memorial was erected in 1943 with the names of the deceased.
On the stone there are nine names, they were ages 8 to 85 years old.
An unknown infant should also have died.
They were buried at this place.
There are no traces of graves anymore.
Today it is a peaceful place, including big oaks.
Around is a low stone wall.
In the northeastern corner is a view of pastures.
Going another way back.
Past the path from the road, the right way here,
over a fence to the summer campsite.
View of the sea with the beach.
At the campsite, genuine chestnut grows.
Picks the pockets full of chestnuts.
Coming out on the road.
A sign at today's burial place "Kolerakyrkogård"
points towards the path to the cholera grave yard.
