Day Three Hundred Ninety One #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

The decisions have been made. We parted. The Purser took his family up to the escarpment eastward. Elijah and I took the harder climb to the north, our immediate destination the riverfront town. 
We are all comfortable with our decisions. Each party discerns the hand of the One upon them. Before parting, Elijah took the Purser aside. In particular he entrusted to him a message that is to be passed on to any followers of Hamashiach they may come across. 

Meridian had come and gone by the time we bid each other God speed. We were atop the escarpment with the city still in view when night fell. 

Far below a large party exited the city. 

Are they in pursuit?

Enoch writes:

The children are our paramount consideration. We looked at each route down from the escarpment and discarded them one by one as too difficult for their small statures.

We swung around to the inland side, keeping the city in view in the distance. There is a road from the city that would appear to intersect somewhere to the south.
