An Old Mausoleum by JocelyneR An Old Mausoleum by JocelyneR
Mausoleum, nearly 300 years old, found in the cemetery of a small village. This village has been the first settlement in 1700 on this part of then called "Nouvelle-France", a French colony at that time. It is now part of the Province of Quebec in Canada.

Listen, just make a journal, covering all thank yous, and then DELETE every comment and such from months gone by and start fresh... I plan to do that if ever I'm away or sick;  even ONE DAY around here can be tremendous in terms of response to people. And really, as members ourselves, we know we have the same thing going on; therefore are appreciative to not have to deal with old replies, for the daily ones can just about be handled (even though the old replies we realize are meant well), as it just adds to the 'job'.  Coming here should never be a job; and that is my worry.

The bottom line is, you are one of my most fav people here, I just love your animal photos especially! - and I want you to ENJOY the time here. I know, we all know, that won't be possible for much longer with the current attitude. I'd never want you to get overwhelmed by it all and leave. (I suspect, this is what happened with Cary and Frank - don't know that for sure, but I'd be willing to bet my left ass cheek) So please, just be here, in the 'here and now' and don't allow it to become a job. None of us want that. Not for you, not for ourselves. :tighthug:

I really like this photograph. It has a very faint Celtic feel to it. Probably because it makes me think of 'New Grange'. Very very nice.

It is located in the village cemetery near the cottage. Built most certainly by the inhabitants, more than 250 years ago.

Thank you!

Is it closed?

Closed... Not sure to understand! :D

If you mean the cottage closed to the village, the distance is about 10 kms.

No I mean if there are any doors. Sorry for my poor English, Jocelyne.

No problem Dana, "closed" means it also! :giggle:

The mausoleum has a front door. I took photos of the door also but I didn't upload any on DA.

At least, you know now how far is the cottage from the village! :lol:

Oh it is closed of course, I mean for visitors! At the church, they surely have the old key to look after it.

Very interesting. It's hard to believe it is in such good shape and has withstood all that time.

It is in a pretty good shape indeed and genuine, erected by the inhabitants of a small colony...
