Legend Of The Black Dove - Part 10B

                           Legend Of The Black Dove   (Part 10B)

                            "The Unknown World"......Continues
                       
Norrington and Jenkins look around to see if they are near some volcanic 
island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Captain Owens arranges a landing 
party to try to get some supplies, food and water and anything else they 
can find. They also take their guns for protection. Flying above the ship 
are two large birds, but on a closer inspection they observe flying reptiles, 
Pterodactyls: it seems they have been transported to the prehistoric times. 
They decide to carry on moving towards the island. Owens, who is leading 
the men, realises they have to go in, get through and out as quick as possible 
through the rainforest with its strange vegetation and small animals. Moments 
later they notice a Stegosaurus eating foliage. Avoiding confrontation they 
walk around the trees only to encounter an Alosaurus- a flesh eater which 
notices them. Growling it starts to chase after the crew. They shoot their 
pistols at it. While running Jenkins falls to the ground,  Norrington turns 
and decoys the beast away from his friend, the other crew members help 
Jenkins escape the beast's clutches. Without being noticed Norrington is 
transformed into the Black Dove and is trying to lure the beast in his direction.  
The other men are now on board the ship, while the Dove is playing a 
dangerous game of cat and mouse with the Alosaurus. The Dove uses his 
super strength  and speed to jump onto the monster's back and render it 
unconscious. The dinosaur slumps to the ground. Becoming John Norrington 
again he rejoins his friends. Captain Owens is successful in getting fresh water 
and some plants for their voyage home. The storm is approaching the Columbia 
giving them another chance to return home to England. Everyone is on board, 
knowing not where they will be going to next.
Will the Columbia's crew finally arrive in England?
Or will they end up in another time zone again?
The startling answer is in Part 11...."Destination Unknown"
