Journey to the Naqsái Lands

30 Trantór 2371

There have been rough seas lately. There were waves higher than any we’d seen so far. When the sea became somewhat calmer we began to see great, tall creatures with multiple legs that walked across the waters on wide, flat feet. They were about four and a half dháiba tall and walked in a long procession in a single file. They did not notice us and did not appear hostile, although they looked fierce. Tékuna and I wished we could see them more closely, but Vakúlaz was reluctant to approach them. The creatures made deep, lowing noises.

This is a drawing pretty much as Phil drew it in my sketchbook. I scanned the original pencil drawing and went over it to outline the creature and added a little shading. I also added the rear back legs that Phil didn't include in the original sketch. I don't recall that he  told us the name of the creature. Maybe someone else who was there that night remembers.
