Until I started blogging, I would have never imagined walking around a cemetery without a tragic reason. However, like I posted yesterday, I have found that cemeteries, particularly older ones, are full of wonderful images and mystery.
As I walked around the grounds, I was intrigued by the tomb stones, some of which dated back to the 1800s. I was also drawn to the decay of many of the older stones. Some had toppled over or were crumbling apart. And a few, were even caving in, leaving the area looking very creepy…and sad.
You could see the grounds were well kept and the stones where placed with as much care as possible. Yet, it was clear, the memorials of the dead were crumbling and will soon be just traces in the past.
