CHAPTER FIVE

LIZBETH, walking on deck in the sunshine, heard the lookout on the masthead hail the deck with a sudden excited cry which brought everyone to attention.
" Land ho!" he yelled. "Deck there! Land three points on the larboard bow, Sir."
Lizbeth stared out to sea. She could see nothing but the water, shading from emerald green to sapphire beneath an endless expanse of blue sky; but she knew that the information was what Rodney was waiting for and the mountains which would soon come into view should be of Dominica or Guadeloupe, while the Channel between these islands was the gateway of the pirates into the Caribbean Sea.
It was the thirty-seventh day since they had left Plymouth. On the twelfth day they had sighted the Canary Islands and watered the ship. Rodney was not disposed to linger there, as the Spaniards were well aware that the Canaries were a convenient calling place for the English ships and it would be easy for a fleet of their great galleons to take them unawares.
So they hurried onwards, seeing on the way nothing more formidable than a whale and a school of porpoises, but they were all of them continually alert for a sight of the enemy.
Lizbeth had gradually adjusted herself to life aboard ship. At first it was a continuous chain of surprises. She had imagined, listening to tales of the adventures of Hawkins and Drake, that she had learnt a little of what life at sea could be like.
But here, aboard the Sea Hawk, reality had nothing in common with her romantic dreams. The life was hard, and as soon as the fresh food was finished she found it difficult to endure the eternal diet of salt beef, salt pork, weevily biscuits and a glass of lemon juice twice a week to keep off scurvy.
It was hard to accustom herself to the rough food, but it was harder still not to reveal how surprising she found those to whom it was ordinary fare. For the first time in her life she saw men at close quarters behave as men and not as gallants. She
