Jumble Spoiler – 08/04/11

Swans, possibly feeding, on Lake Søerne in Cop...

Image via Wikipedia

Visual Description:  Saturday, in the park. (I think it was the 4th of Ju-ly-y.)

HECBA  =  BEACH, HAKLC  =  CHALK,  DISARU  =  RADIUS,  NUIDNW  =  UNWIND   —   Giving us:  EALKASWN

Clue/Question:  What the waterfowl turned the pond into.

Answer:  SWAN LAKE

(A couple of good clue words, today.  Both “radius” and “unwind” took a little thought.  Overall, pretty good scrambling.  I don’t know if the Clue could have been phrased any differently, but for me, it made the answer even more obvious.  Maybe using “waterfowl” was a little heavy-handed?  Considering how good the drawing is maybe simply saying BIRDS would have made it a little vaguer, and thus more challenging.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Is that David and his lady friend?

    Entire puzzle was easy! I think we had RADIUS not too long ago! This has to be one of my favoirte drawings so far! Swans are majestic and beautiful! 6 of them flew over my backyard the day before yesterday…slowly making a strange honking sound…

    We DID have radius before, just a different scrambling.

    I have never gotten “radius” before–I always have to look it up. My inner science nerd has failed me again. *Sigh*

    Uhh . . . very funny, Ange? I’m betting you were no wiz in Geometry, too! But, I can’t really talk. My math career ended with Algebra!
