Sullivan's Island Historic Cemetery


Last night I dumped tons of photos on my external hard drive, and I realized I didn't share our lil hidden discovery on our recent trip to Charleston: The Sullivan's Island Historic Cemetery. If the entry sign didn't exist, you wouldn't know these few small headstones were even there. We slipped past the front gate -- and a small black cat, hiding in the daisies -- and explored a little for ourselves. Some of the graves dated back to the mid 1800s, and others were from the early 1900s. One grave in particular caught our interest -- so many of the letters and numbers were written backwards on the headstone. I wonder why? I've never seen anything quite like that before.

It was a peaceful place, and we enjoyed exploring before we moved on. I wonder if that little black cat is always the cemetery's gatekeeper?
