After we left the museum, we walked back up to the train station - but made a couple stops on the way: the old school-house (looks a little fancy for a school to me, but we asked an old lady coming out of the church next door) which has stood empty for years; and the churchyard. I was looking for some old 18th century grave stones.
|We didn't break in this time. We just looked in from the fence.|
|I don't know that I've ever seen a Star of David on a gravestone before.|
|Aha! Here are some oldies. These were just fragments up against the church wall. We've got wings, bones, an hour glass, spades & something else above the bones, but I'm not exactly sure what it is...|
|Are those cauldrons of flame? Or are they plants? Of course, there's a lovely skull in the middle as well.|
|Most of the gravestones looked like this one. They were extremely tall!|
|And a large portion of them all had this same motif: the urn with the flowers on the side.|
