Lily Briscoe is grateful no one hears her crying and calling for Mrs. Ramsay. The "pain of want" and her "bitter anger" lessen. Briefly she feels Mrs. Ramsay's presence bringing her relief. She returns to painting, imagining Mrs. Ramsay surrounded by flowers.
Desiring "distance and blue," Lily looks to the water and sees Mr. Ramsay's boat in the middle of the bay.
Noticing the considerable distance between the boat and lighthouse, Lily wonders whether they will reach their destination, a journey that parallels for them what completing her painting means for her. Thinking the "sea and sky" look made of "one fabric," disoriented, she momentarily loses sight of the boat and feels anxious, wanting to connect more with Mr. Ramsay.
