After collecting Inspiration here, go back down the steps and east a bit to find a couple of turtles paddling back and forth.

Hop on the turtle closest to you when possible, and then onto the next turtle when the latter is a little to the north.

Then, wait for the first turtle to resume paddling, and jump onto it when it is a little to the east of the turtle you’re standing on.

Keep repeating this process to get to either the west (where there’s some Inspiration), or to the north, where there’s the exit.

You can now use your drum to open clams and get Inspiration. Go south from here to find a blue horse. Talk to them.

You will get the new quest “Something Pretty”, which is simpler than it sounds. Go west up the stairs and then immediately north to a sand hill.

After getting rid of the sand hill with your drum, continue north and you’ll find another sand hill to the east.

Now go west up the two flights of stairs to find a ladder you can unroll. Go down this ladder to get to Moominpappa’s boat.

Before leaving, break down the sand hills to the north and then to the east, which will take you to a page of Moominpappa’s masterpiece lying on the beach.
