June 6 NYT Strands Solved

While I didn’t exactly get what the theme today meant right off the bat, I was glad to have gotten BOTTLE right at the bottom right. At the top right, I found GLASS next and right beside it, a very unsure STONE. SHELL wasn’t a hard find either in the leftmost column and above it, FOSSIL wasn’t trying too hard to hide either.

I still didn’t know what the Spangram for the day was though, and I was getting slightly frustrated after a while. So I used a hint to get DRIFTWOOD and that led me to find BEACHCOMBING as the Spangram for the day. And, that was it for today’s Strands.

Apart from having to use that one hint, it was mostly alright. A good challenge, I’d say. How did your Strands go though? Did you find it hard or managed to solve it without using any hints? Do cry your heart out in the comments down below!
