ECHOES OR PROMISES?

Only months ago Frodo had never seen a beach. Those glimpsed when sailing from the Havens looked golden, but these were purest white. Burrowing beneath the sun-warmed surface, toes took refuge in the cooler under-layer. Frodo had imagined sand to be grainy, like the lighter soils of the South Farthing, but this was more akin to fine, powdered, chalk.

At his side was a selection of shells. Elrond could name each species, but that was of little interest to the Ringbearer. Empty, fragile, yet still delicately beautiful, when held to his ear they murmured ... of distant memory, or future hope?
