Laketown and Boats

Laketown and Boats Can't Post

We've seen a few scattered photos of Laketown, but I haven't seen anything of the boats and rafts used. I don't even recall any views of boats in Dale, although its on the river that runs into the lake.

Since water is their main protection, I'll be interested to see how they show the boats, rafts and barges that are quite frequent mentions in the book narrative.

The dwarves journey part way to Erebor by boat, and certianly the Master of Lake Town has a nice barge to escape the dragon in.

Did you see the alternate video blog? [In reply to] Can't Post

That contained a couple shots of boats at Laketown (unless that is what you are referring to).

boats... [In reply to] Can't Post

Baltimore's Inner Harbor contains rental "dragonboats" which look like little floating purple or green dragons...

it also contains the Pride of Baltimore II...

hmmmm the Pride of Bardimore...

We also have the Constellation... perhaps the Master escapes in the Consternation... or the Constipation....

Go outside and play...
