6 Feet Under

So when Mr.F went to St.Cyrus the other day he came across a grave site, with lots of old stones still standing. If I go with him next time, I am really going to have to remember to bring some paper so I can get some rubbings off of the stones and maybe read some of them easier. The whole place looks like a good place to spend a nice day walking around (and time spent trying not to fall off the cliffs :p)

And there is a waterfall which would have probably been insane last week with all the rain we had.
The lawn is still getting taken care of, but not sure if anyone would still be buried there. Would be a pretty place to be buried though :)

A few old stones, some of the stones that Mr.F took pictures of are pretty worn, but for being over 200 years old they are in pretty good shape.

Anyone want to guess what this says. I can't figure it out lol

OK - Sir William Rettes? Douglas President of the Royal Scottish Academy LLD? B 29 Mar 1822 D 20 ? 1891 RIP
Marion Barclay.. not enough contrast in the photo to see further... :-) But I think she was Wm's wife.

with a bit of digging, I found that the grave belonged to William Fettes Douglas (Close enough Michelle), painter of "The Alchemist" and other artworks.
Oddly though there is little or nothing about him online, not even on Wikipedia....
