The hobbits slept at the secret camp and never they had rested better for long than this time. Shortly before sunrise Faramir woke them up because of a strange thing that had happened. Some time before the watch had seen a strange creature sneaking around the camp but he could not name its race. The hobbits followed Faramir to a high point of the cliff above the waterfall and looked down to the pool. There they saw Sméagol sneaking around and finally jumping in the pool and returning with a fish in his mouth. He then sat on the ground and ate the fish.
