Cemetery Marker

    Newer Older

    I never made it at sunset to this part of Camiguin. But it was understandable since there were other places to go. What frustrates me, was that I never saw any grave. I brought along a disposable underwater camera, as I was thinking I can go down these waters, skin dive for a while and take photos of the undersea graves. Graves always interest me, much more -- an underwater grave. But it was not to be. This part of camiguin's waters were too murky, and too dark. It was much clearer in one of the photos I saw before coming here. Still, this was a particularly intriguing place in Camiguin, a reminder of the consequences of living with multiple volcanoes.

    This underwater sunken cemetery was actually a real cemetery before a violent volcanic eruption of a nearby volcano in 1871. Mt. Vulcan, Mt. Bolkan, Mt. Volcan, Mt. Vulcan Daan -- these were the names that were used interchangeably. Can't figure out which one is the actual name. The site is now marked by a huge cross that was built by the Camiguin local government in 1982.
