Got it. Step 2 proved ornery for me. Good one.

On shore. This one reminds me a lot of one of my favorites, but revealing which one it is would be a spoiler. Fun puzzle!

Very clever. Took an extra bit because I had to look up the workings of something I haven’t done in a long time.

And I just noticed a bow to wrap it all up (or maybe just a coincidence:)

Likewise, but on shore. Now I'll see if I can find a rabbit to chase in the PGWCC.

On shore, having chased the wrong rabbit for a short time. I’ll place my order for a Guinness to be served once Happy Hour starts in the Pacific time zone.

Wow, I had to do some serious remedial work before I got this one!
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday.

A "long time" being decades, literally, in my case!
