Page one!!!!!

I'm pretty much always a fan of Patrick's puzzles, when I have the time to do them. Rows Gardens in particular are great, but they take a little while.

On the beach, the correct beach this week, 100%.

Love me some Patrick Berry! A tricky one!
Oh, BTW, I had dinner with my nephew last night and he concurs with Will P that "no one" in academia says "essay test" anymore.

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.

On shore. It took me way too long to see what was going on here, but a satisfying click once I got there.
