Fun one.

I agree with @Joe Ross that it could have been more difficult. Though I don't think I would have gotten it without anything in there to help me.

On shore!

And scorching! If you think of our back deck as the shore. I love these summer evenings. But tonight? Maybe too hot. Yes, too hot -- in Michigan!

Fun puzzle!

What the WHAT?! How did he come up with this? We had a guess but couldn’t get the click we needed, and after another look, we went another way and are now confidently on shore. Very cool puzzle, and I’m glad my ineptitude in French wasn’t a factor this week!

Joe Ross is right. Changing [redacted] would have made this one more difficult. How much more difficult, I have no idea.
It doesn't seem quite right that a puzzle that has an original idea/mechanism (at least I haven't seen it before) and that was probably a bit difficult to compose should have be so easy for solvers.

Not my wheelhouse but safely ashore. Two Guinnesses? I’d love that.
