Christ Church at Adams Run

It’s easy to whiz right by this church, because there’s not a clear driveway or parking lot. We drove a bit past and pulled into someone’s driveway which bordered the churchyard. It was an easy park on the grass, and we walked over to the church.

Another sunny day in paradise.

Since we’ve approached the church from the side, we walk out through the front gate and start our tour in the proper fashion. As usual, we’re wandering around doing things a bit backwards, but it feels normal for us. We’re going to have such fun when we move to the old folks home.

The front gate is open and waiting for us. When we walk through the gate, I look back to my right and snap a shot of the openwork brick wall.

There’s something not quite right about the facade below. There’s something that looks like a column to our left side of the door. A column, but not a column.

We stop over to the graveyard and wander around a bit.

In the right foreground, someone has placed a bench for contemplation of the day.

This pathway is covered with mounds of moss. It’s unusual, and quite beautiful.

I see something growing on the cross, so I zoomed in, took another shot, and showed it to Sugar.

He said that the cross is wooden, and there are plants growing on it. Resurrection ferns, perhaps?

Who doesn’t love shutters? If you don’t, don’t raise your hand. We’ll all look at you with a hate vibration.

And the column that’s not a column? It is a compartment for the rope for the bell in the bell tower.

Why, yes, it was tempting to pull the rope.

There’s a little building, a chapel perhaps, or a fellowship hall. As you stand at the front gate, this building is off and back to your left.

And the end of a very good day.
