After taking many pictures at Bag End, we continued on, sharply descending off of "The Hill" to the party field, where Bilbo had held his 111th birthday celebrations. Without a huge crowd of people and tents, it was mostly just a big grassy field.
We took a short stroll along nearby Bagshot Row, where the residence of Frodo's trusty sidekick Samwise Gamgee is located. This was also quite a large hobbit residence, though not as large as Bag End. Lori, in her capacity as real-estate agent, thought this might be a nice place to put up for sale.

At this point we had seen many, many hobbit-holes, lots of wonderful gardens, and endless flowers. It was all starting to melt together into a blur. Fortunately, we were now on the western side of the town, and from here a pleasant path led through forest over to the final two attractions - the mill and the Green Dragon Inn, situated alongside "The Water". Crossing over the stone bridge (well, simulated stone), we arrived at the inn, which does have a finished interior (in fact there is an actual pub inside where you receive a free drink as part of the tour). This was actually Green Dragon Inn v2, with the first version having been burned down as part of the filming of the Scouring of the Shire sequence in the Lord of the Rings movies.
After taking in the bucolic scene next to the water's edge, we went inside for our free taste of ale and a bit of a sit-down. We toasted to the good fortune of our upcoming trip days, then waited for the signal to walk back to the tour bus pickup location. Our loop of Hobbiton was complete, roughly two hours after setting out.
