While we were in Nelson B.C. one of our stops was at the Cemetery on the edge of town. It had been a long time since we’d been to an old cemetery like this one.
We were the only ones in the cemetery besides the gardeners.
A grieving wife…
These always make me sad. I can’t imagine the grief of losing a child.
While driving in the Kootenay areas in B.C. we noticed lots of street names in rural areas that were Russian names. I had forgotten about the large Doukhobor settlements in this part of Canada.
We grew up with some Lazeroff’s in Montebello, California.
This was the military section of the cemetery with maple leaves on most of the headstones.
The strangest headstone we saw in this cemetery.
On the way out we saw this sign. Oops! Glad we didn’t bump into him/her!
We had helpful advice from the Visitors Center who gave us the directions to this cemetery and a map for a self guided history walk of the city. We spent time at the Anglican church viewing their beautiful stained glass windows and enjoyed a snack at Jackson’s Hole and Grill before we headed back to the Border. I’ll be sharing the photos from the Anglican church soon.
