Sam felt right proud of his Rosie… she always knew just the thing when it came to dressin’ an’ wotnot. And these were exactly it!
He’d told her they were going to the sea-shore to say goodbye to Old Bilbo and Master Frodo. She’d been upset, he knew she would, then straightaway started planning.
“Food, drink… travelling clothes… and somethings for while you’re there.”
Sam wriggled his toes in the unfamiliar leather straps.
‘These certainly helped…’
Rosie’d heard sand was gritty; she’d shaped leather, attaching thongs for between the toes…
‘Sand-alls, she called ‘em.’
He’d a mind to say ‘flip-flops’.
