A momentous day of broadening horizons. We indeed did turn our steps southward and revisited the tiny fishing village.
Elijah inquired of one of the villagers if there were any port cities further to the south. The villager was in the midst of enumerating three such cities when I noticed for the first time a huge land mass stretching across the ocean’s horizon in front of us. And I realized that cloudy weather had obscured it from us ever since our arrival.
Elijah switched his questions to this large island, and learned that there is a major port on its northern side.
Before leaving we made arrangements to ship out to said port with the fishing fleet early tomorrow morning.
