Little Dutch Boy
Here's the seawall, the Dutch creation that reclaimed hundreds of miles of submerged Guyanese prime land and serves as the only line of defense against the raging Atlantic ocean. I walked down there one afternoon while I was staying at the Windjammer nearby. It was the first chance I'd gotten to actually go down to the seawall since I arrived in Guyana nearly five months prior. The seawall is a major Georgetown liming site and serves a very important social function that way.
