Snapshots: Sunken Cemetery, Camiguin, Philippines

As a late Halloween post, an on-time All Saints' Day feature and an early All Souls' Day commemoration, this week's photo is one I took of the Sunken Cemetery in the island of Camiguin, Philippines.

The cemetery was buried underwater after a volcanic eruption in the island in 1871. Over a century later, a huge cross was installed to mark the location of the cemetery. You can actually take a boat and reach the platform where the giant cross is built, and from there, if the tide is low, you can look out into the water and make out some of the tombstones that were buried during the eruption - either that, or my eyes were playing tricks on me when we visited.

Hey Lianne! Traveling is awesome indeed! Thanks for visiting my blog! :)

And I hope my Misibis Bay trip pushes through, considering all that's happening with Mayon Volcano. I'm crossing my fingers! :)
