Welcome to the final article of the Fellowship Walk 2013. Here I take the opportunity to highlight the events of last Thursdays walk.
The walk down the steep slopes did not take too long, but we were very worried that Miss Needles would fall over the edge in her search for a good vantage point.
Andunie a band of musical Elves were waiting for us outside the Last Homely House with prepared music and refreshments.
Although we were foot sore and weary those of us who could, delighted the host Elves with a quick step.
While some went inside to visit Bilbo, others preferred to stay outside and enjoy the music.
From here you could see the path we walked stretching far into the distant heights.
From her vantage point Alsel got a good glimpse of the mounted parade. Riders and Mounts ready to impress the audience.
Here I am on Sparkle, I love how every now and then she sets off a beautiful whiz-cracker!
After a short amount of time everyone voted for their favourite “Rider and Mount” a clear winner was chosen by the gathered free-folk. Mithrilfist was awarded as a prize 100 fireworks!
Mithrilfist on his black pony decked in lovely blue tac. A well deserved winner of our little parade.
As events drew to a close we have this screenshot of our Mounted Parade winner to share.
Our long line of participants for the Mounted Parade all looking lovely.
To celebrate the Fellowship Walk’s grand success Lilikate offered our bravest walkers the opportunity to tour the cold camps of the Fellowship in Eregion. So we head off again to walk though the lands of Middle-Earth.
As we made our way over the miles of terrain, night turned to day. The heat turned to frost and back warm again.
We had very brief but succinct closing speeches all that arrived at the Sirannon Gate were given a very special prize.

We raised $5902.50 for Child’s Play!
Well done everybody! From those people who handed in craft or rep items to make auction packs, to everyone who walked or played music. To those who donated time and those who donated funds. Looking back on the last month there have been so many helpers and supporters it is impossible for me to remember them all. So a big collective thanks to all of you.
Hugs and salutes are available to all who I meet in my travels.
