Disappointed because I deduced the answer before figuring out the meta... but I think that means I'm getting better at these with experience.

Time for a 16 oz Northwest Pilsner from https://www.occidentalbrewing.com/

I'm on a shore, and I'm pretty sure it's the right one. Enjoyable swim. I'll take something fruity and strong today.

Well that was different! Time for a Hendricks & Fever Tree Elderflower tonic.

At least I got the grid this week. Meta? Not a clue.

Count me still aboard, skipper.

On Shore - Nice one.

When I went to the forum, last weeks shows at the top of the list for some reason and this week is the second one right below it. I saw it and it was barely after 5 on Thursday and thought "21 pages of comments already!!"

On shore. This is why I love metas. You look and look and you don't see anything and you don't even know what you're looking for and then all of a sudden you finally see it!
