It was true redemption after an embarrassing debacle last June when the “Loonies” excavated half the beach in a fruitless search spurred by a fake map.
As it turns out, the kids found their 2013 map under a boulder with natural markings in the shape of a backwards ‘F’. The backwards ‘F’ should have been an obvious indication that the map was a fake.
The front of this map (pictured right) has similar markings to many of the other maps that have lead to real treasure finds for the Goonies. It also has a poetic element on the back (pictured left) that helped the kids interpret where to focus their search efforts.
