Granted the visions seemed more dangerous, in his current addled state. ...

Fawns nostrils flared at the strong smells: fish, clams, critters with twitching legs like giant crawdads packed in seaweed frying funnel cakes, boiling crabs, dried fruit, cheeses piles of used clothing not well laundered chickens, goats, sheep, horses.
