Today, I'm once again participating in Snapshot Saturday which is sponsored by Alyce of At Home With Books! Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
These are some of the pictures I took of gravestones at St. Thomas's main cemetery, in Charlotte Amalie. The cemetery is quite overcrowded and some of the older graves are in disrepair but it was interesting seeing the old names and seeing what people had written about their loved ones.

|This is from one of the older tombs - other parts have been broken off but her face was probably too stern for vandals to mess with.|
