One lead, the other follow…Out of curiosity, maybe loyalty or could it be a race…a race to a new beginning. Are they explorers seeking glory? To share exciting chatter about the far off lands beyond the river…maybe they will describe the strange creatures sitting in a dead tree that was moving in the river. I wonder what tales these friends might tell…I wonder what the world looks like through their eyes…
Beautiful Landscapes in Deep South, Guyana
Parabara is a small Indigenous Community located in Region 9, Guyana, South America. Quiet and scenic, this remote village offers a seemingly relaxed lifestyle.
Another view of the Church in Leguan. The old tower juts out on the landscape, contrasting the dark trees in the background. It seems haunted and abandoned, like it was some ominous relic of a horrible past….maybe it was….
Kneeling on the ground, looking up at this tower, which is part of a 19th Century Anglican Church in Guyana, a former Colony of Great Britain, France and Holland. Located in Leguan, an island in the mighty Essequibo River, this marvel is not seen by many. Yet it lies there in a state of slumber, waiting to be awaken by the sound of footsteps traversing its cobwebbed floor.
Welcome to Leguan, the Island of peace and serenity. The people are easygoing and polite, the food is tasty and affordable, and the time moves slowly.
I stand alone, dare to thrive where others fell. I do not boast nor brag about this feat because alas, I am alone. The clouds gathered above in angry consort, enraged by my defiance and refusal to bend. A healthy root system and an unyielding trunk, I shall not be moved. Yea they come against me with chains of destruction, I shall stand with my leaves ready, ready to launch counter attacks defend by home. Yes it is I, the one who stands alone.
St. Peter’s Anglican Church was originally constructed in 1827, however, this current structure was established in 1855. Located on the relatively serene island of Leguan, this church draws an air of mystique and uneasiness. Graves offer their salutations as one enters the periphery of the church estate and a dead calm permeates the atmosphere…no pun intended.
