NYT Crossword Puzzle 10-7-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 25D One who’s not a fan: BOOER because I had had HATER there for a while, and I couldn’t understand how 23A Frozen asteroid or planet was ICEHALL. Turned out it was ICEBALL because HATER was BOOER, and that makes way more sense.

The theme today was a grid-based one?

58A With 59-Across, lakeside activity … or a hint to the words spelled across the fifth, eighth and 11th rows of the completed grid: SKIPPING STONES.
