Tombstone Tuesday - Grand Cayman

It's a sort of Spring Break this week on Tombstone Tuesday.  These are photos I took some 20 years ago on Grand Cayman in the Caribbean Sea.  Even back then I couldn't pass a cemetery without taking a picture.

The Cayman Islands are made of lava, dolomite and sand, so underground burial is almost impossible.
