Pictures taken in Salinas

While in visiting my daughter in Salinas, we decided to go for a little walk. Right across street from her is this little church, which she says she has never seen open.
And all around it are grave sites. They were not being well cared for.  There were broken headstones, and the graves were severely tipped as the ground is very unlevel.

Some were very interesting like this little one.  It was only about 18 inches tall.

And like this enclosed one.  Which was about 4 feet long.
Here's the back side - or maybe this was the front side.
They all have Mexican names except for this one.  He was born in Bath, England.
Which is where my husband's family is from so I took the picture.  I'm really not that much into going to old grave sites, but at least my daughter and I had fun.  And she said is planning a surprise for her younger sisters; she's taking them out there this Friday - which will be Friday the 13th.   I think they will get a kick out of it as it's bit spooky even in the daytime. 


  1. What a shame that the cemetery is in such disrepair. I love the little church.

  2. Sounds like you're having a nice trip! I love old churches.
