Yeah!! Finally found Bess.  Unfortunately the bad guy got away, and it was who I had suspected all along.  The really bad news was that he got away with El Toro’s treasure, which wasn’t gold but much more valuable.  Oh and by the way we found El Toro, literally, his skeleton was still in his bed where he had died.  Good thing I’m used to seeing skeletons and mummies otherwise I would have been totally freaked out.

Anyway Bess was safe, and calm as can be.  George was so happy to see her, for all about 5 min, but that’s another story.  I for one and glad to be going home. nancy-drew-ransom-of-the-seven-ships-2
