This Swan ship was a good deal bigger than the one in which he had sailed down the Anduin so many years before, and at first he felt so ill he thought all he’d need by the time they arrived was a tomb.
Then he found sitting on deck, in the shadow of the billowing sail, was better than down below and eschewed the cabin even at night.
So he was one of the few passengers who saw the rainbow at dawn, gateway to the straight road, felt the sea calm and the ship float on, light as a feather.
