I'm back only for a moment. Due to unforseen circumstances, I've been away far longer than I wanted to be, and I will have to leave again in just a moment. You guys may be doing this alone. T.T I really wanted to be here when we did this... I'll try to get back as fast as possible.

There's only one man in charge of the puzzle, and that man hasn't posted yet. There's a whole day ahead. Be patient, guys.

Of course I do. I'm not sure it's applicable, though (for me, "woman" is associated with more of a middle-aged one), and saying "human" is just ridiculous. I may be wrong, but whatever. Let's not offtop further. :|

Don't worry, people, I am still going down there. I just have to wait for my ride to finish watching his football team get their butts kicked.

Did I make it back on time? The printing presses at the local paper broke down, so I had to do three Sunday paper routes just now as opposed to at 3:00 AM like I normally do them.

Though she will be. She's just waiting on her sports-oholic ride to be free of his football-watching duties. :P
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

I'm here, guys! Uploading the photos I took. I didn't see any message in a bottle or anything like that, and there were two sets of "six fish swimming towards the sea". Took photos of both sets, the plaque, the artist dedication, and a plaque on the side rails one of the fish was pointing towards.

Are you still on-site? Mr. A implied that there would e an object waiting there for you.

I'm still close by, but we'd have to pay for parking again. I saw no object nearby.

Wait, ride just informed me he saw something. Going back.

OK, beginning analysis. I hope we get what we need.

I think the fish look kind of hollow from the photo. Maybe there's something behind one of them. The riddle seemed to emphasize the fish swimming towards the plaque.

Understood. A close examination of the fish is required, as well as the area around the statue. Make sure to sight down the line that the fish aiming for the plaque is taking and check the ground/whatever it is pointing towards.

The riddle specifically referred to the fish swimming towards the plaque. Could you take a picture of that fish?

Yeah, check the fish specifically (around it, in it even if possible), it makes sense considering the riddle's content now that I think about.
