The oldest graveyard in Courtenay. It is next to Mission Hill just as you leave town northward towards Campbell River. They didn't bother to level things in the old days. Almost looks old enough to be in the UK?

LOL! Tony--- we have similar--- but I bet ours are at least 50 years older than yours! Amazing how similar it looks to one near us--- That is where the people who built our house live---under those curious ghost shaped graves--- (House was built in 1860)

A wonderful image, i especially like what is inside that ornate fence---

and I think the butterfly was newly hatched---not much done to the image!

Thanks for looking in!

I've never seen that cemetery. Looks very interesting, wish I could see the date on the headstone. Great capture.......Sandy

Sandy, It is next to the oldest church north of Nanaimo at the foot of mission hill. The church is white siding and, [ sadly for us photogs], does not look that old at all. TG

A rather unusual subject matter Tony, however from a historical perspective a very interesting one. "The image certainly lends its self to a monochromatic makeover?"

some great history attached to this image - we sometimes visit nearby churchyards, it seems now for lack of space they open very old graves and reuse them and one in particular we were told did not bury on top of old graves that were from the times of the plague (why I do not know but its fact)Wink

Along with some friends, did a survey of one of our local churchyards, and the history was amazing. Gave the finished book to the Vicar. That's a lovely bit of ironwok in your image.

Great last resting place Tony, not sure if it is the same in the states but when you read the obituaries in the times in the UK people die in alphabetical order.

Alphabetical order? Not too surprising. Brits are so well organized. TG
