A Tomb With A View

This graveyard here in St Ives, Cornwall, has to be up in the top ten places to be buried.

Having a great time here in Cornwall. I’m really looking forward to meeting a fellow blogger today. We leave for South Africa on Thursday.

    • That’s so interesting. You live in a most beautiful part of England. I have to say that I was quite shocked at how neglected the cemetery grounds were. We chatted to a local couple who said that they’d never seen it so overgrown with weeds.

      • St. Ives is a beautiful place to live, but unfortunately the council have been cutting funding to things like mowing the grass in the cemeteries, the roadside verges and public parks. And yes, it had been looking very unkempt. The good news is, the gardeners have been into Barnoon Cemetery, and have mown, and strimmed all the long grasses and weeds. Thank goodness!

  1. Wonderful view..A trip to an archaeological site is always enriching ..Sheer elegance of the monuments and the whole vintage detailing in their architecture just sets the mood right and delightfully take us back to history ..I too happened to visit a not so popular 16th century Tomb and believe me ,the experience was beyond words..it felt great..I have summarized the details & photographs here :

  2. Great to hear you are enjoying your travels, Sylvia! Have a good time in South Africa! I am heading to Sweden in a week, can’t wait! XXX

  3. Hmmm… my late husband used to joke about folks dying to get into places like that! πŸ˜€ Sounds like you’re having a grand time on your latest adventures. Perhaps someday you’ll make it out to our coast as you mentioned in a recent comment! πŸ˜€

  4. Nice view . . . for those of us with eyes wide open. πŸ˜€

    Have a fun meet up with Jude. (I thought you might be meeting with the blogger behind “My Beautiful Things” ~ whose name escapes me at the moment.)

  5. Did you find the grave of artist and mariner, Alfred Wallis? It has a lighthouse decoration and covered with tiles made by Bernard Leach. I haven’t found it yet!
