Red Jack returns ...

Red Jack the pirate has returned to the Caribbean, he has landed in the Yucatan and has gone inland via a river in search of mayan gold. They had set off from an old mission outpost and after a day found some ruins -one small gold idol was found with some jade pieces - enough to make the trip worthwhile. 

---oXo---

They got lost in the jungle on the way back, they stopped on a rise, one of the had men shimmied up a tree and could see a glint of water in the distance - the river ?...
 At the boats by the river, since Red Jack was late back one of the men blew a small horn every five minutes or so...
 Hearing the faint sound of the horn, Red Jack and his men headed towards it ...
 They paused for a moment near a small pool where a large cat-like animal was having a drink,  they waited to see what it would do ...
 the cat moved away into the undergrowth, Red Jack led his men round the undergrowth which the cat had gone into ...
As they moved on a large crocodile was seen .....
 As they skirted a large pool, they could see the crocodile basking in the sun ...
 some natives had spotted Red Jack and and his men ...
 the native hunting party moves up to take a closer look ....
 As the pirates near a patch of dense undergrowth two of their men go down, hit by arrows ....
 The pirates move up and fire into the undergrowth ....
 they skirt round the patch of undergrowth, while firing into it .....
 they heard the sound of the horn again, much nearer - they head onwards and finally arrive at the old mission outpost....
they are soon back in the boats and off down river on their way back to the ship ....
