The long and sleek vessel known as the Sea Seeker has been recently spotted to have dropped anchor near Candlekeep, and a large amount of sailors were ferried off the vessel to the library fortress.
"The desire to build a house is the tired wish of a man content with a single anchorage. The desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet to accept the idea of a final resting place."
"The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator."

A dark-robed traveler knocks at Candlekeep's gate. He lets the guards recognize him, as he has been here many times before, especially to see Reader Lafreth...but this time, he came for someone else entirely. As he is given passage, he asks information on the whereabout of Lafali Atria, claiming there is an "important matter" they need to discuss.

Several months after she was last sighted within the stone walls, Alexandra Keenan returned to Candlekeep.
The young woman ended up giving a tour of the grounds before she took lodgings at the inn.

The Raven-haired Haluraan woman Maurmeril has been spied in and around the grounds of Candlekeep. Most recently, she is seen wearing her deep blue coat, the symbol of Candlekeep stitched onto her sleeve.

Upon learning that Alexandra was staying in Candlekeep again, Jojo the kobold came to visit!
He enjoyed cake in a lounge full of people while telling them of a mystery that still needs to be solved.

Alexandra Keenan, the Tour Guide of Candlekeep, spent several candle-marks leading a throng of visitors and members throughout the grounds and telling them of the rich history of the famed library fortress.

A visitor to Candlekeep brought with him a cart filled with treasures and coins:
gifts for Alexandra from someone in her past who would soon pass into the realm of death.
The unexpected inheritance and somber news took the young woman by surprise, and she retired early to her quarters.

The Sea Seeker has been reportedly spotted on the horizon by a particularly keen eyed guardsman on the walls.
From how tiny the ship appears to be, it's likely it won't arrive for quite a few hours yet.
Furthermore, based on the time it was away, likely her captain will be preoccupied with paperwork and captain-y matters for the following day.

Word spreads from the library fortress that after soliciting feedback from the Avowed, Ulraunt, the Keeper of the Tomes, has again named Alexandra Keenan as the Guide of Candlekeep and given her all the seals and symbols that accompany the office.

A letter is left with the postman outside, after a female tiefling had waited two hours reading quietly to herself requesting a sending or a return letter about a possible meeting with Guild Alexandrea in regards to a possible interview by suggestion by a mister Emrys about possible membership and service to Candle Keep, a name left at the bottom; Valkira Vexx.

Contemporarily to the resource planning and reassignment conducted by the returning Guide Alexandra Keenan, a dark-robed visitor, coming to know of the Candlekeep staff Conclave, makes his way to the inn where he meets an exotic duo, engaging in a lengthy conversation. Others in the inn might have heard bits and pieces about illusion magic and planar lore being debated. The involved amicably parted ways a couple of candlemarks after.
