After things calmed down between the navy and the pirates (after their joint defeat of the yellowcoats, as will be detailed in my medium entry description), a couple of the more enterprising crew decided that they ought to go an dig up their captain's forgotten treasure, and live it up! So they got excavation supplies and headed over to the island, thinking that in a couple of hours they would be richer than they ever had been.
Six hours later, and they were still digging (or at least, one of them was)....
The pirate who had thought of the whole venture was certainly enjoying himself...
The Pirate Who Likes Green Clothes was on his digging shift, down in the pit He's sad that the others seem to have forgotten that their shifts should have started an hour ago.
During break times, the pit looked like this. They'd tried digging through the rock, but it' hadn't worked, so they'd just dug down past it. (This picture looks really unnatural, because I accidentally turned the flash on. The orange thing is an Ice Planet 2002 visor, which will soon be the latest addition to the contents of the bucket)
While excavating, these three have found a number of useless objects in the sand. They toss them in this bucket.
The Pirate Who Can't Grow a Proper Beard is inspecting such an item right now... he may not be for much longer, though.
What's with this blasted telescope? Can't see a thing through it! Maybe it'll help if I push this red button..."
Of course, the Pirate Captain was far too crafty to let his crew be able to dig up his "forgotten" treasure, which is still very much on his mind. To get to it, they'd need to have brought the key to the hidden door on the rock...
My third revision. I tried to take some of your advice, and made the entry twice as tall. I also added the third pirate and the palm tree. I think it's a lot better. Hope you like it! (No, I really do, I want a free shipwreck hideout, or at least cannon battle! )
