Yes, it seems like a strange thing to do.
And yes, we got a few strange looks at the time.
On Tuesday we bought some bread and cheese, and took a little picnic to the cemetary. Not because we're weirdos who want to raise the dead, but because we wanted to see Jim Morrison's grave and hadn't eaten lunch yet.
Unfortunately the boys took too long eating their cheese and the cemetary closed before we found what we were looking for, but it was a nice picnic ... apart from the ominous thunder and closing darkness.
