Signs, Signs & A Good Fence Atop Fort Monroe

click on photos to enlarge
I didn't understand this Memorial Park. There's nothing "parky" about the area on top of the fort...so getting this post ready I was googling the park and found out it is a pet cemetery...I didn't even notice the graves...how did I miss that? You can read about that HERE (just ignore all the pesky ads through the story...I hate when sites do that!)
