Pieces of Eight Treasure Map

  

It is widely agreed that a treasure map is an essential part of any self-respecting pirate's sea chest. I mean, without a map, how would you EVER find the treasure? Especially when faced with a chain of eight islands guarded by a rainbow-speckled sea monster. This guy is pretty, but he isn't especially friendly. He takes his job of protecting the Pieces of Eight Archipelago very seriously.

 

Clearly, you'll need this map to help you figure out where to go and the safest way to get there (hint: approach the islands from the monster's blind spot, and then swim very quietly from one island to the next).
