The answer to this week's contest is the two grid entries that combine to describe the theme.

Good luck with the grid and the meta

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.

The site is just a web page, a meeting place, a clubhouse - it's the group that's special.

On the shore. The cabana boy is taking his afternoon siesta. Then he has to take a shower and figure out which speedo to wear. We may not see him for awhile.
