Ohio Smith & The Gooey Gull Guano
Ohio Smith tied his rowboat to a rock and swam past the crabby lobsters that pinched him from Ohio to Smith.
The cliff held a cave that was only visible on sunny days from March to June between 13:17 and 13:49.
In the cave, Dr. Smith found the hardened-guano gull idol thought sacred by ancient gull-worshiping people. Grabbing the idol and dodging an onslaught of gulls that would have terrified Hitchcock, he escaped to the ocean where the statue liquified, covering the good doctor in gooey gull guano. He reached the rock as his rowboat floated toward the shore.
