    The problem with this, and any rocky concept is much more a geographical one: The mouths of the Anduin seem to be a typical delta, which is when a river splits into multiple small streams before it enters the sea. This happens at spots where there are not that much tides, and the river flows really slowly when it enters the sea. Then it deponits the sand and small gravel that it carried with itself in that area, so these islands should all be flat and made out of sand and gravel mostly (ofc as this is a slow process, it can be well grasscovered). But its definitely not a spot where you would see cliffs.
    More information if you're into such things: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_delta

    I think that came up earlier. Someone found the quote from the book and it never actually said in Pelargir - that was a misinterpretation by Tolkien Gateway.

    But, even if Tolkien Gateway is correct, the palace in Pelargir was originally built with the intention of being Tarannon Falastur's house.
