Black angel

In Vale Cemetery, the Veeder plot is watched over by this angel.  She's cast of a black metal but wears a greenish patina.  The Veeders were among the very first Dutch to settle here in the 1660s.  I always love passing by this section of the cemetery.  It's right on the edge of the vale, almost a cliff, where the Cowhorn Creek flows down below, but up here, it's a quiet, leafy sanctuary.  There's even a concrete bench that's part of the next-door family plot so to speak.

  1. By your description, it sounds like a peaceful sanctuary.


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
