Our World Tuesday: Time Waits for Some

 We took a walk in the Old Bethlehem Cemetery on Sunday.  We stopped there last fall but never got back.  Until now.  It's a well-maintained, peaceful little patch at the far end of the Bellamy-Ferriday House property.  At the far corner of the cemetery is a path that wanders around the property.
 These damaged stones made me think of how stories go on and on despite time and the Connecticut weather.
 This stone near the path onto the property is the base of a cairn now.

 The trees do what they do to get to the sun.  The effect is lyrical.
 Little Maeve enjoyed a change in scenery, so she wasn't up for posing for the camera.
 The cool areas in the woods were still rich with summer flora.
 The stone walls are perfect yet.
 Here are two sisters basking in the sunshine.
 Back at the cemetery, we stoped for a moment to honor the Revolutionary dead.  There were many.
 We figured this engraver was paid by the letter.  There's a geography lesson in this woman's story.
 The sunny view on the way out was very nice.  It's a welcoming place in its own way.
 Down the road and around the corner, Adella found herself a pumpkin at March Farms.
She's very patient with me and my camera.

  8. That cemetery looks so peaceful, like something out of a story book.

  9. I'm not ready for Fall. But this is a perfect Autumn post (and I know that for you and Adele, Fall starts when school does... we are retired so we can go on pretending it is still summer for a while). A lot of history in cemeteries .

  10. What a wonderful, magical place. I always feel at peace in cemeteries, especially the old ones.

    I too have a very patient with Dad, child. Goes along with my very patient with me wife.

  11. Lyrical and lovely!

    Hawaii grave yards have tombs of New England sailors "Born in America" as well as graves telling the unique history of these islands. Such places as you share so well are the best schools of history and humanity. Thank You, pal
