					                                           Captain Graybeard’s Pirate Treasure Hunt
Captain Graybeard is a pirate with a problem – too many barnacles on the brain. He keeps forgetting things, important things like which end of the
 ship is the bow or which end is up. Help him by filling in the answers for each number from 1-30. The clues will be right in front of you, sort of,
although you may have to put your pirate hat on and use your imagination to figure out the answers. Your journey will take you to four fascinating
   islands. Once you’ve helped Graybeard with the answers, try the bonus question and rearrange the 19 letters to figure out the captain’s last
                              message. You just might get a reward from Graybeard’s treasure for your help! Arrh!

                                                                                  Tropical Cove
Ahoy mateys! Prove t' me that you be worthy t' sail t' seas by answerin’ this question: can you name me favorite fish? (1) Now then, I need your help
t' get me ship ready t' sail for adventure on t' high seas. First I'm goin' t' need two thin's for me shoulders: one t' talk t' (2) and t' other t' decorate me
   pirate outfit (3). Come t' think o' it, I needs me an ocean t' sail (4), and some really light wood t' keep on hand (5) if I have t' abandon ship. Arrh!

 (The Butterfly Garden closes after 6 PM but you can use the Butterfly ID Chart outside the entrance to answer the following – that’s all you need!)
                 I need me a ship t' sail (6) and some bilge rats t' man me ship (7). Maybe I'll stock up on some dry, salty food (8).
                                                      And I needs me a map of sorts (9). Arrh!

   Me bein a pirate, I might need some extra arms and legs t' do what I got t' do. So an (10) would be good t' take along. When we get t' feelin
 hungry, a vegetable (11) would taste mighty good along with some peanut butter and (12) with a crunchy snack (13) t' boot. Me hopes thar's not
                                       too many clouds so we can see by t' (14) and steer by t' (15). Arrh!

   I need t' name me ship t' (16) so we can be a scary lot. We be searchin for (17) and (18) ships full of treasure but o' course a (19) will be
    onboard t' heal me hearties after t' battles. I train me men t' be on t' lookout for me enemies but never t' (20) on a fellow pirate. If we be
caught by t' (21) and his (22), then I hope t' have a (23) on hand t' escape from t' dungeon. If not, then a pardon from t' (24) will surely get me
  freedom since she gave me a (25) t’ plunder ships. Once free, it's aft t' t' high seas and a hearty meal for me and me crew, most probably
some pork from a (26), dessert (27) and a drink high in vitamin “Sea” (28) t’ keep scurvy away. We be findin’ a (29) beach somewhere t' bury
