Going To Monroeville, Part 1

Sunday, February 24, 2008

This weekend, we went to Monroeville for a little arts and crafts festival they were having in the courthouse square. We found some of the neatest things on the way over!

The outbuilding for dinner on the grounds:

The church cemetery included this monument with shells all over it:

His daughter brought a picture of her late father to Italy and commissioned this monument.
