Meanwhile, a long way from my usual locations in the American southwest is a shot from Angelsey Abbey, a National Trust property near Cambridge, on the eastern side of England.
My parents were frequent visitors to England; after my mom passed away, my dad wanted to make one more trip to visit some of their favorite places. They loved going to National Trust properties, so we saw several of them. Although this place was not one of my favorites, I did like this statue which oversees a portion of the formal gardens.
PS: I realize that you didn’t ask, but I am going to tell you anyway. My favorite National Trust properties were the Stowe Gardens (featured on the blog here) and the Wimpole Estate, which made a blog appearance here.
At the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, over 3,200 Americans are buried and another 5,100 names are inscribed on the Tablets of the Missing. The majority died during World War II’s Battle of the Atlantic or in the strategic air bombardment of northwest Europe.
Is it any wonder, then, that there are so many crosses they blur together….
