a list of where I'd like Val to find her clues. The overview map
(below) shows the route. You can click on the red boxes to view
more detailed maps. I plan on taping the clues to the bottom of
park benches. It would probably be a good idea to send copies
(or I could easily make them myself), just in case it happens
to rain the night before and they get all wet. Here are the details:
- I'll start by handing her Clue #1 at
home. It'll direct her to a park bench (see
Map 1), about 200' from our place, where we watched sunsets
and read when we first moved here.
- Clue #2 will direct her to the turtle
pond (see Map 2) -
a small concrete pool where they keep wild turtles that have
- Clue #3 will direct her to the Small
Boat Marina (see Map 3).
This is where we stand out over the water and watch sharks and
sea turtles. Perhaps you could say something like, "After
seeing turtles in captivity, let's go see them in the wild"...though
with a pirate flare, yar!
- Clue #4 will send her to Emon Beach
(see Map 4). This
is where the Kayak Shack is located. I plan on burying the "booty"
about 33 paces from the shack (normal to the face of it), in
the sand, towards the lagoon. While pacing, she'll be forced
to walk between two palm trees.
Hopefully it doesn't rain too much between
the time I bury the treasure and when she digs it up. For added
protection, I'll probably place the chest in a couple of garbage
I hope this helps. Please let me know
if there's anything else I can do!
