Midgewater Marshes, Day 11 from the Shire
“We walked all day and we have to make camp here again tonight! Strider says we’ll be out by tomorrow. The Neekerbreekers are giving us another sleepless night. We can see Weathertop from here to the east with some kind of bright flashes of light * over it. I miss the Shire.
* What neither Sam nor the companions could not have known was that the lights were Gandalf’s magic on Weathertop as he fought off the Nazgûl. Gandalf had arrived in Bree the day after the companions left it, but because they told had told Barleyman, innkeeper at the Prancing Pony, that they were headed for Weathertop, Gandalf rode straight there. The remaining four Nazgûl attacked him there and he outwitted them and escaped.
