Post by Wendy Walker »

Hello Muggle Friends!
This week's puzzle is by Mike Shenk. The meta answer is a 7-letter word.
Here's the PDF link: https://s.wsj.net/public/resources/docu ... 2021SE.pdf
And here's the puzzle page link: https://www.wsj.com/articles/two-for-on ... 1626709450
(I am not subbing this weekend; your Cruise Director reports that he is stuck in traffic.)

Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

Got it!!! (That's my 26D) For me, one of those rare "see it happening" while filling in the grid puzzles.
Happily on shore. :D

Solved. Tougher grid but I was locked in on the meta early.

On shore. Struggled with the grid, but the meta came quickly.

Got it, on shore, nice one, 100% click. Grid not completely easy.

(Post-solve edit: upon reflection, there's an extra layer of elegance to this that I didn't appreciate at first in my haste to get onto page 1)

On shore! Nice puzzle!

I've been barrel-aging a couple liters of Manhattans for a week and a half so far. Might be time to check the progress.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

On the beach with a margarita. The cabana boy is restocking the bar. He thinks the hordes will be descending shortly.
