A Cumbrian landscape (Buttermere) becomes a scene from Lord of the Rings: Strider leading the Hobbits from the Midgewater Marshes to the Weather Hills (where Frodo will have an unfortunate encounter with a Wraith). But for now, the Hobbits greatest concern is getting that ‘fool of a Took’ across the stream without him bathing in it (and pulling poor Merry in after). Frodo intends to help, as soon as he can stop laughing.
Strider and Sam (with Bill the pony) are ahead.
