BE A PIRATE!

alt text

The rules are very simple…

All you have to do is to make believe that you’re a pirate,

alt text

sailing the Caribbean, and looking for a hidden treasure.

alt text

The clues, in this post, will be your treasure map…

alt text

So, start digging through the clues…

alt text

and find the treasure!!!!

alt text

CLUE #1:

The treasure is buried on an island in the Caribbean. It was, originally, inhabited by the Arawaks, who gave it its present-day name. The name comes from the mountains and rivers, which abound. There is one, spectacular, beach that stretches for seven miles.

Sorry, live2ski, but it's not Grand Cayman.

Actually, "Seven Mile Beach" on grand Cayman is, actually, only 5 1/2 miles long and was, obviously, named by a man... :grin:

Also, Cayman is as flat as a pancake....

CLUE #2:

It’s a large island, for the Caribbean, and beautiful. The rivers rush down from the mountains, into the sea, and, sometimes, in their hurry form stunning waterfalls.

CONGRATULATIONS, JBOND! JAMAICA IT IS!

alt text

These would have been the rest of the clues….

CLUE #3:

It has it’s own style of music, not the steel pan, Calypso, or Soca, imported to all of the islands from Trinidad & Tobago, and its very own religion!

CLUE #4:

It even has its own special hedge plant…

CLUE #5:

A walk up the waterfall, on a hot summer day, is fantastic! Or, ride a river raft down the Martha Brae…

I guess #3 would be reggae and Rastafarianism.

Is #4 croton? Surely not marijuana. The croton always looks so good when it's clipped.

As for #5, we've climbed the falls several times. When I saw the movie Dr No back in the very early 60's, I never dreamed that I would stand on that beach and climb the falls.

We have never rafted the Martha Brae, but we have rafted the Rio Grande that brings you out to the ocean close to Port Antonio.

Jamaica has a bad name, but it is really high on my list as one of the most beautiful islands around.

Yes, jbond, to #3. As far as #4, the plant is called "Ganja" by the locals....

As far as the seven-mile long beach, it's at Negril, and beautiful!
