Disclaimer: Tolkien invented the descendants of Elros; Himring set some of them talking.

The sundial is neatly inscribed in Quenya: Count the Sunny Hour.
Yavien finds Elros seated beside it, soaking up autumn sunlight. He smiles as she crouches down.
‘Great-grandfather’, she begins. ‘I met someone I could… Someone I care for.’
‘Did you, my Yavien? When will I get to meet him?’
Yavien hesitates.
‘She’s a fisher girl from Nindamos.’
A moment’s silence.
‘What a pity’, says Elros then. ‘I’d put on a plain cloak and travel to Nindamos to see the woman who’s captured your adventurous heart, but I’m too old.’
‘You’re not old, great-grandfather!’
‘Sadly, my bones say otherwise, Yavien.’
