The only illumination during the night (besides our bonfire) were from the ships in harbor. The city itself lay dark and eerily silent.
The ship we identified as ours appeared to be docked towards the opposite side of the port. So, rising early we set out to march to that end. Our first sight of the landward side was disheartening. The city is so huge we despaired of reaching our goal before nightfall. In the distance a low causeway ran from the interior of the island up to the city. This proved to be a highway leading to the main gate of the city.
I wanted to attempt entry there, but Elijah decided we needed to stick to our plan.
