“Tidal treasures”



Hi Strands fans. A fairly run-of-the-mill puzzle today, which shouldn't cause too many problems, but isn't that memorable either.

With a theme like "Tidal treasures", I was immediately looking for things from the beach. SHELL, written top to bottom along the left-hand side, jumped out at me right away, and BOTTLE written along the bottom backwards, quickly followed.

I now knew it was about things that might wash up on a beach, so picked up GLASS in the top right, followed by DRIFTWOOD a little below it. Finding these answers left a clear start and endpoint for the spangram: BEACHCOMBING.

Two were left over, twisted around each other in the top-left corner. I untangled them as STONE and FOSSIL to complete the puzzle relatively quickly.
