As internationally recognized consultant detectives - Reilly Holmes and Denny Watson we are on the trail of the great sand thief and I do believe we are getting closer to finding our culprit.
Our day began with a stake out - first we hid and observed from the sand dunes where of coarse NO-ONE could see us. Then we hid amongst the rocks of the breakwater - where again NO-ONE could see us because we are after all masters of disguise.
Then out of the corner of my eye I saw something and the chase was truly afoot. I ran like the wind to catch up with the suspect who was as it turns out..... a SAND PIPER!
When Denny Watson finally caught up he asked why we were chasing this bird - "it is elementary Dear Watson" I said "The name was a dead give away - "SAND PIPER"
Was this indeed the very criminal master mind we had been hunting for - was he like the pied piper and luring MY sand away with a melodic tune or was he more like a sand baron and using huge underwater pipes to pipe away my sand before putting it in all those empty cargo containers we had seen on the ships.
Yes indeed Denny Watson - this could well be our culprit! - but can you believe what Denny Watson said next - "Erm I think Holmes - that this might be considered a bit of circumstantial evidence - just because it's name is Sand Piper - it doesn't mean it is piping our sand away."
"Ba Humbug Dweeb" - was my only response - I KNOW my great deductive reasoning was irrefutable - I am the GREAT Reilly Holmes after all!
What do you think? Should the hunt go on - or have we indeed found our culprit?
That makes sense to me... his long beak looks like a flute... and I can see a long trace behind that guy in the water... bet that are all that sand grains who follow him...ReplyDelete
A sand piper?! You think he's the culprit taking all of that sand my friends? I have to tell you the water and your pictures are so breathtakingly beautiful. They are making mommy crave to see the ocean again. XOXO - BaconReplyDelete
This case just keeps getting better and better! I WANTS TO CHASE THEM BIRDIES! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!ReplyDelete
Your Dachshund pal,
The sandpiper looks pretty guilty to us. Look at him trying to escape from questioning!ReplyDelete
I fear this may only be a red herring of a bird... cease not until the truth is full out!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Reilly Holmes job well done. We think you found the culpritReplyDelete

He does look a bit small to be responsible....We say keep him on your short list of suspects and keep looking!!ReplyDelete

Is the Sand Piper like the Pied Piper? Did he get the sand to follow him into a mountain?ReplyDelete
yes that may be him!ReplyDelete

Wow. Well, I've seen birdies taking branches and even some of the Sibe fluff Mom brushes out of us -- so it's quite possible that one took your sand! Astonishing!ReplyDelete
Hey, I can't see you guys in those first two pictures AT ALL! You really are masters of disguise!
We have been closely following your mystery. You could eliminate the Sand Piper and see if the sand still disappears. I know this sounds a bit crazy, but have you thought that it might be the moon? It only comes out at night, and uses the waves to steal sand! I can't wait to hear how this all resolves.ReplyDelete
Of course, you could always "eliminate" the sand piper and see if the thievery continues. Have you considered that sneaky moon? I know it only comes out at night, and it might be enlisting the ocean to help steal your sand!ReplyDelete
Looks guilty to me.ReplyDelete
It's possible...if he has a flock of helpers perhaps. I think you better do a little more sleuthing.ReplyDelete
Well if that sandpiper can pipe out a good tune, that sand could just be following him farther down the beach.ReplyDelete

I don't knows...he seems a little frail to have pipped all that sand away on his own...I agree, some interrogation is needed...if you needs me to slobber on him, just lets me know...it's a tried and true interrogation technique! ☺ReplyDelete
I watched The Birds many times and I can tell you they are up to no good!ReplyDelete
