A peaceful place

Back in early November when the weather was too nice to be indoors and I wasn’t ready to go home yet after my walk at Chesnut Park, I stopped by Sylvian Abby cemetery. It’s not just any random cemetery (although I have been know to stop at those too. Sometimes cemeteries have good birds). My grandparents are buried here. It was quiet and peaceful with only a few people there.

They are buried in front of these statues. I decided to walk around a bit and realized there are a lot of statues here.

I’m not sure who these statues are but they were big. I didn’t see a sign or plaque.

There are beautiful stained glass windows in the outdoor chapel and mausoleum.

I found this turtle carved out of an old oak tree.

Plants were growing everywhere.

Plaques at the back entrance.
