  1. Beautiful and bright door, Leia! I'm writing you from my new artblog! In the little villages in Holland, the cemetery is usually behind the church.

  4. Beautiful. I love the perspective in the shot of the cemetery. Does the village sit perched on a cliff? Is that the sea or a river delta in the background. Very interesting.

  6. Churches always look like churches, not matter where you are in the world. Even if there was no religious features on show, for some reason you'd always know that the building was a church.

  7. What beautiful photos! I love the pink-red of the door and the blue of the notice board in the first photo, and the wonderful view of the low tide in the last one.

  8. One has to wonder if the people who built this expected it to be standing 500-600 years in the future? They certainly built it to last!

    Although it shows some wear and tear it looks in remarkably good shape. Red doors are common among Episcopal churches in this country. The cemetery is very small and quite unique. Wonder who's buried there and if any of their descendants are still living?

    Lovely photos!
