Did his quest for booty end with a tragic misstep, or was he abandoned by his cut-lass and mates? Argh, matey, the Cove isn’t for the faint of heart especially for a lonely swashbuckler tis this time of year. Best have a mate or two watching your back at night.

Tough spot. Somewhat obscure and out of the way away from the main beaches. Hard to monitor or respond to. Improvements would help, but i doubt get rid of the delinquency going on in that area :/
