                                                      Lizard Island  Chapter 4

The children started down the pathway with Bill triumphantly leading the way. Sue was close behind carrying the small chest, deep in thought. As they came to a tall tree about half way along the path she noticed the same symbol carved on the lower outer bark. “Look” she said and the all stopped and peered at the tree. A thought came to Sue, that if she were a pirate she would hide the key in a different place to the chest. Bill started digging frantically and he struck what seemed to be a stone this time, so he again removed the sand carefully.“It’s a leather Pouch tied to a stone” Bill said, and Sue told the others what she had been thinking of earlier.  “Could this, be the key!”  Sam said excitedly as they opened the pouch. Bill pulled out a key and placed it into the lock and looked at the others. “Turn it quickly!”  Sue added, and the key easily turned and the lid opened with a pop. They all stood back in disbelief as Bill took out a map of what seemed to be Lizard Island. When they got back to the beach the fishing boat was just anchoring. Soon they were all on board and heading back to the mainland with their secret.
