Landfall at last!

Et Eärello Endorenna utúlien. Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn' Ambar-metta.

Though the ground twists strangely beneath my feet after so many days at sea, t'is good to feel the solid rock of Middle-earth.

His own lands ravaged and destroyed, Círdan’s welcome is tinged with a shared grief.

Grey halls are lined with bright banners, tables spread with white cloths heave with food and drink. Ships’ provisions and salt seas have fostered a great thirst within me, but of wine I shall not partake.

Only the sweet water of our new home shall pass my lips this day.
