Monday, 10 October 2941 T.A.: Up the river Celduin

Bilbo did not like that view of Erebor
(The Matterhorn, painter and year unidentified)
The second day of the voyage upstream from Lake-town, on this day in 2941 T.A., ended unequivocally in a camp at the banks of the River Running. Bilbo much disliked the view of Erebor looming over their site. It was pointed out that the current of Celduin was rather swift and progress slow. That explains why it took four days by boat to travel a distance that Smaug covered in the air within an hour or two.
