    Default Verse #9

    The first chapter
    Written in water
    Near men
    With wind rose
    Behind bending branches
    And a green picket fence
    At the base of a tall tree
    You can still hear the honking
    Shell, limestone, silver, salt
    Stars move by day
    Sails pass by night
    Even in darkness
    Like moonlight in teardrops
    Over the tall grass
    Years pass, rain falls.

    My theory is that Pic 6 and Verse 9 go together. The FL imagery in the pic seems too obvious to ignore.

    Verse Nine:
    The first chapter
    Written in water (first explorers to N. America)

    Near men
    With wind rose (sailors/explorers/sea)

    Stars move by day
    Sails pass by night
    Even in darkness
    Like moonlight in teardrops (These suggest a lighthouse to me. Showing Boats how to navigate at night with "treardrops" of light)

    If Pic 6 goes with this verse I think Ponce de leon Inlet lighthouse http://www.ponceinlet.org/index.html might be a good place to start.

    At the base of a tall tree
    You can still hear the honking (This is now the second tallest lighthouse in the nation, and it looks like ships still dock nearby (honking sound)) The lighthouse is still in use today.

    Over the tall grass
    Years pass, rain falls (tall grass = cattails?)

    Looking at the pictures of the light house the place is surrounded by a picket fence built to keep wild pigs out - but it is white in the pictures. Was it green years back? Possibly, looking at the historical pictures the surrounding structures on the property have green trim. And one of the articles says there is still a green cabinet in the lighthouse from a previous owner.

    Many people think that it may be in the St. Augustine area, which also has a lighthouse. The Ponce de leon lighthouse is only a few miles south of St. Augustine. Another interesting fact about the Ponce lighthouse is that the Author of "The red badge of Courage" wrote about this lighthouse, when it was known as Mosquito Inlet Lighthouse. The first part of the story was "written in water."

    unlearn, and relearn."

    Ok, is any else working on this book? I have a very strong hunch on where one of the caches(sp) is located and would like to combine my clues and observations. Anyone in north or central FL want to collaborate?

    bigtd35, you really, really need to visit the Quest4Treasure forum on this hunt. One long conversation that's been going on for years. Thousands of messages. It could be that your idea has been thought of before.

    thanks f.b. ... know about the wiki, got to the other website......finally...., but my thoughts are/were totally from the way my mind thinks. i've been independent for all these ideas except the #'s in the pics... as i said, just having fun with this! sure beats reruns on tv! anyway, on to my v-9 theory...the first chapter written in water... in the beginning it was a lake, river, ocean, etc. years pass, rain falls ...implies very sporadic rainfall shell, limestone, silver, salt... i know, already been equated to bonneville salt flats, but wait... you can still hear the honking (l.a. freeway) stars move by day (hollywood) near men with wind rose (edwards afb meteoroligical station) brings me to el mirage dry lake... the "other" (one of anyway) speed course, this time in california. sails pass by night even in darkness... you can tent on the lake bed, but have to stay within 100' of the shoreline, because the land yachts like to race at night and might run over you. yeah, sailboats on wheels, who'd of thunk it! in the n.e. corner of the area (i think thats where i saw it on the map), is a building, farmlike from the air, with trees by a fenced in area. take a look... just a different slant, and of course, just having fun!

    I am firmly in the St. Augustine camp on this one, but I do like how you think! It is good to approach these verses not as containing veiled literal references, but as plays on words and other tricks common to riddles. The kind of thing that make you smack your forehead and ask yourself why you didn't realize the answer long ago.

    Incidentally, "El Mirage" works well with Image 6 because - unlike the rock - the tree does not appear in reflection and thus might be interpreted as a mirage (?).

    yes, i see what you say about the palm tree, but i still like florida for this pic. i've read over some of the ideas on the other site, but feel it might change my perspective if i delve too deeply into one idea or another. which leads me to ask, i know all the references to ponce, but didn't see any in my quick scan that the cloudbank in the background is ponce also, or someone like him.(facing right, moustache touching the stone nose). probably i just missed it. tomorrow, chuckle day, i'll tell how i figure v-1 to be in toronto!!! till then, just having fun...

    Now this is something I look forward to hearing! Toronto is close enough for me to take a drive..

    http://fcit.usf.edu/FLORIDA/photos/a...mi/miami19.htm
