Lemaly, you forgot to choose one of my scenarios, and say why.
I prefer Bag End and the company of Bilbo and Gandalf, because there is nothing better than listening to tales, especially when Gandalf does the talking.
1. In Woody End, sitting with Frodo, Sam and Pip by the fire.
2. In Ithilien, with Sam, while he prepares his coney-stew.
where and why?
