In addition to the R.H. Carr adventure, John and Pauline Grimshaw also visited and stayed at the Watooka House (It is looking just fine). Their photo shoot included a set of videos which can be reached at the Watooka House page or by clicking any of the photos below.

Watooka House now even has it’s own page on the web, although it doesn’t like Firefox.

The intrepid John and Pauline Grimshaw did a little poking around during their recent trip to Guyana. With the assistance of A. Mazaharally & Sons they visited the old wreck of the R.H. Carr, reputed to be located at Skull Point, now confirmed.

John says “I think Skull Point is on the Cuyuni River, just upstream from its confluence with the Mazaruni River”.

Pauline also took a bunch of still photos…

Click the following photo to go to the R.H. Carr page where you can view the video and some of the photos.
