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?
