Memorial Day Weekend ~ May 25, 2013

We have a long day ahead of us. Many places to go and some special people to see. Our first stop is at Mount Auburn Cemetery. The morning was wet and cool but we have wanted to visit this place for quite awhile.

The cemetery truly is beautifully landscaped and there are so many cool stones and statues. Unfortunately our time was limited and we could only hit a few of the sites.

The Mary Baker Eddy Monument is impressive and a stand out for me (I have never felt like arguing with a memorials inscription quite like this).

Morning at Mount Auburn. What the heck is the purpose of the orange dog/fox staute?

Another stand out is the Bigelow Chapel:

Yup it is tall.

and across the road facing the chapel is a sphinx.

Not exactly Cairo.

Unfortunately we had scheduled plans for the rest of the day but I hope we get a chance to spend a full day exploring this awesome cemetery.
