Choose ‘t north pathe, watchin’ fer ‘t greene post fer ‘t Creek. Beware ‘ere, ‘t pathe be full of waylayers an’ landlubbers an’ scallywags as it be no longer a main roade. Turn starboard side. Go alon’, until ye spot ‘t crows nests t’ ‘t starboard side, an’ ‘t Brig with ‘t imprisoned metal monster t’ ‘t port side. Note ‘t huge green grog barrel in another brig that has been breeched by a plank, ALAS it be now emptye, nearby stande upright ‘t 4 masts of a scuttled ship, no treasure be t’ be foun’ ‘ere but beware p’isons all about ye, stay on ‘t pathe. Continue on ‘t pathe an’ ye will be rewarded by ‘t sounds of a mighty ri’er. Follow ‘t pathe a while longer goin’ past ‘t “orange jewels an’ gold” these be not real treasures (but might mislead ye) until ye come t’ ‘t white WARNIN’ poste…ahead lies danger an’ not fer ‘t lily-livered …disease an’ sickness…choose carefully if ye wish t’ continue this ‘ere quest fer treasure…Looke around an’ be certain thar be no cutthroats or other swabs followin’ ye. walk 17 paces from ‘t post. T’ yer starboard side at 202 degrees ye will see a small openin’ in ‘t brush t’ ‘t “Garden Bowl”. Enter ‘ere if ye dare, an’ walke 3paces int’ clearin’ where ‘t group of trees stand, but BEWARE ‘t trees ha’e sharp quills; one pricke from their mighty p’ison has felled mighty oakes. From ‘t center of ‘t groupin’, espy ‘t felled trees which were not careful an’ search fer a large X which marks ‘t spot. Shiver me timbers! Under ‘ere be ‘t booty of ‘t Jolly Roger in a black box. AVAST ye swabs, be sure t’ return ‘t box t’ its hidden location or ye’ll be walkin’ ‘t plank ‘ere mornin’.

Return t’ ‘t pathe an’ continue on until it rejoins ‘t yellow pathe, go west back t’ ye olde cart from ‘ere, or wander ‘t trails an’ enjoy ‘t view, tharby allayin, any fear of bein, watched or followed fer yer treasure.
