On shore! Liked this one. I'd like to think I would have gotten it without (spoiler) but maybe not, my track record hasn't been that good lately :-)

RFLOL! That was a great meta! I am on the beach with my margarita looking forward to some baseball!

Still laughing about the meta, but spoke too soon about baseball. There’s always tomorrow.

Roh-roh. "Great meta" means I'm going to have great difficulty solving it.

Ahoy! Isaac!

On shore! So clever. I had an idea what was going on while doing the grid.
BTW I will miss next week's Zoom meeting. I have an actual in-person township meeting. Will stop in if I can though!
