you found HPL's grave...
we went to the cemetary, but didn't find it. I had the lotnr, but there wasn't a logical order, and no one around to ask...

I have a copy of Jason C Eckhardt's Off the Ancient Track from Necronomicon Press which has a map. So we just drove straight up to the grave. And it really is a pretty straight line from the entrance. After I took some pictures a guard turned up and told us off for taking pictures without asking permission (of whom I'm not sure) but then he said everyone does it.

When we walked up College Hill to look the first HPL house above, the next door neighbour was watering her garden. Unprompted she said, 'Yeah, that's Lovecraft's house.' They get a few visitors and plenty of media crews at Halloween. Then her plummer turned up and said, 'Lovecraft's house? No kidding!' and also took some photos.

One could say you were on the trail of Cthulhu. ;)
HPL had two houses? I thought he was poor?
No Deep Ones?

Re: Excellent
He lived in them sequentially and they probably belonged to others (his aunts for example) but they were pretty huge houses. There were two more in Providence and a couple in Brooklyn which we didn't visit.
