 In Arda
- T.A. 3018:
- The hobbits have breakfast with bread, fruit and drinks the High Elves left for them. Frodo decides to continue to Bucklebury by cutting through Green Hill Country and the Marish.
- They are blocked by the Stock-brook, until they see a Black Rider for a third time, behind them; they are forced to dive into the bushes by the bank and continue their way along it.
- They wade the stream and run into a wood; rain falls over the Marish. At mid-day they have a lunch beside a sheltered elm. Their rest is disturbed by hearing two evil cries from the distance.
- Around the same time a Black Rider interrogates Farmer Maggot about "Baggins", but he doesn't cooperate.
- Leaving the wood, the hobbits see that they have turned too much to the south; adjusting their course to the Bucklebury Ferry, they reach a turnip field outside Maggot's estates in the afternoon.
- After a dinner, Maggot takes the hobbits with his waggon to the Ferry. They meet Merry looking for them.
- They reach Crickhollow in the night. Frodo reveals them his plans but they are already known. In the night he dreams about the trees of the Old Forest.
- Gandalf hurries towards The Shire on Shadowfax.
- Boromir travels towards Rivendell to ask for counsel.
