    Looking on the Castway Cay home page
    there is a link for Serenity Bay.

    the last poem for the last puzzle spoke
    of finding serenity.

    Here is a link to a video of the Volvo being pulled out of the ground today on Abaco in the Bahamas. The finalist from England, who was eliminated yesterday, was nice enough to post it for those of us who can't get enough of this contest!

    If anyone is interested, you can still go on the website and play the game for fun.

    if the finalists were chosen randomly, how the heck did two people with the same last name get chosen??

    Hi Wilhouse,

    The finalists were not picked randomly. The 7 people who submitted the last puzzle's correct answer in the fastest time were selected. The rules predetermined that the finalists would consist of the top 3 from the US and the number 1 finishers from Japan, Austria, Spain and the UK

    This is one reason the contest was so impressive. It was based entirely on skill and not some one-in-a-million chance lottery. The puzzles were challenging and mysterious and the final outcome was fair.

    The two finalists from the US with the same last name were father and son. The younger was the eventual winner of the car.

    And the son, Dave, won the car.
