Yesterday at co-op, I, Red Ethel, kidnapped Applie and set her up for ransome. I forced her landlubber students to hunt for my treasure. It was a scarry day, says I!. Argggg.
I only had one clue to begin with.
Where the mountains have ladders.
Where the vines are chains.

The smart landlubbers, quickly figured out where to look for the next clue; at the playground. They need to be cleaning the poop deck, instead of playing on a playground. I’ll be speaken to that Applie, for sure.
They found the next clue, plus a compass. I was impressed that Applie tought them how to read said instrument. Smart landlubber, facilitator! Arggg…. She still needs to walk the plank.
The little maties traveled all over the island searching for me treasure. There were two more riddles they had to straigten out and they did. At one point swashbucklin’ started and I had to threaten the little mites with the plank. They’ll out there to find me booty, not to start a fighten.
At one point, the scallywags, couldn’t find the clue. They must have had too much applejuice grog, and it clouded their thinkin’.
Can you landlubbers find the clue?
By the Powers!, them Buccanneers found the final clue to the big treasure. Where the X marks the spot! It’s a site for these sore pirate eyes, says I.
Aye! It leads them to a party. Since they found me treasure, I won’t be sending the Lily-livereds to Davy Jones’ Locker. There was grog, doubloons, and other sorted treasures.
Shiver me timbers! We be had a good time. Yo-ho-ho, Me Hearties!
