Aragorn had heard tales of the sea, but could never have imagined its size!  Blue waters stretched out until they seemed to touch the sky.  The waves broke frothy crests upon the sand, tireless steeds of Ulmo.

He gazed at that distant horizon. Somewhere out there, far to the West, his ancestors' land had fallen beneath those blue waters.  And still farther westward lay the forbidden shores of Valinor. 

For a moment he stood lost in wistful thought, wondering what might have been.  

Aragorn grasped a pebble and cast it into the waves. Then he walked away without looking back.
