(A very visual Jumble today! If our friend Vijay was still commenting he might express a bit of difficulty in solving this one. Maybe more than 10 seconds! It wasn’t super difficult, but it did rely somewhat on the visual of the bike/hiking/jogging path being along the shoreline. No new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new. Mr. Hoyt has used both “tairo” and “astee” before. The answer letter layout was decent, but I think it might have been a bit more cryptic had both the five and six letter words been flipped. That would have given us: ASEATOSCALCRW. But, you all know how yer uncle likes to nitpick . . . sometimes. The cartoon also was a little lacking. Ones like these can always benefit from the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon. I know the holidays can be a little tiring, but c’mon guys! LOL! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
