I’m sitting on this sandy beach with a pint of Guinness in my reach.
Mmmm-mmmmm
In a week I never planned,
With every grid and clue I scanned,
No metas solved and hat in hand…
Here’s finally one I understand!
Homeward bound…

On shore. My cookies got third, too.
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.

cute. on shore. Glad it didn't take too long as I've got a busy weekend ahead. My 2nd son becomes a bar mitzvah this Saturday (and Cindy and Toby are coming to Boston to celebrate with us!).
