|Good-bye Baganara Resort|

Well the time had come for us to depart Guyana. We were there nearly two months. Only one other sailboat remained - sv Wild Matilda. All the others had sailed on.

|Good-bye Essequibo River|
|Good-bye beautiful Guyana skies|

We had a wonderful time in Guyana. It is so different from the rest of the Caribbean. It was a nice introduction to South America. The people of Guyana are friendly while a tad reserve aka no pushy touristy stuff - only the maxi taxi loaders are pushy. The raw beauty of the undeveloped land is stunning. We owe a huge thanks to sv Wild Matilda, sv Liahona, and sv Persephone who had been before and went again this time. They knew the ropes from last time and helped paved the way for many of our adventures in Guyana. A big thank you also goes out to Stuart, Paul and staff at Baginara Resort. They were warm and welcoming to all of us cruisers. Would we recommend Guyana for cruisers looking to get off the beaten path? Yes. Would we go again? Yes!
|Good-bye weird and wonderful folage|
|Good-bye odd insects|
Final note - Thanks for following along on our adventure Off The Charts In Guyana. I know I can be a tad wordy and include a ton of pics that take time and bandwidth. But in my defense, I didn't want you to miss anything!
