This is only my extrapolation of events after the end of the book. We all know that Sam eventually sailed West, to be reunited with Frodo on Tol Eressëa. I am glad that Tolkien left this beautiful scene to our imaginations. Here I have them sitting quietly together at the docks as they remember all the family and friends they have had to leave behind. The elf-light of this magical place was both difficult and fun to try to visualize, but my favorite part of doing this illustration was making Sam's foot hair ^_^
