30th February

I finally found the famous "30th February" gravestone in the kirkyard of St Magnus Cathedral a couple of weeks ago, and went back today to photograph it (getting caught in the rain in the process....)

I was slightly intrigued by the fact that 2 out of the 3 gates to the kirkyard were padlocked shut - I don't recall ever noticing that before, and wonder if it's a new, and not very welcome, development?

I'm assuming that the stonemason had his mind on other things when he was carving the lettering on the grave. The deceased's actual death date was 30th January, not - of course - 30th February!
