Extensively, although not in any way that he would dare let slip to her, if for no other reason than to avoid causing her worry. The task is to attend her as company and guardian, and if that means being a quite literal source of support, it would hardly do to shake that foundation. (Plus, out of the two of them he still managed on foot in front of the other rather easily, though whether that was a lighter state of intoxication or just better practise at disrupted balance was anyone's guess). "Not at all, my lady," the knight declares in full confidence, "The tavern was just a bit stuffy, so the evening air has helped awaken the mind from the staleness."
Feeling the weight on his arm, though, her words are perhaps saying more than just summarizing their rather eventful day.. To be sure, he'll be equally glad not to see a beach any time soon, much less the wreck of a ship, in case voices come a-calling again, but that isn't quite what is the issue here (Though it takes him a little bit longer to notice than usual, probably from the soft fog floating around the mind, dulling senses usually quite sharp). "Hmm.." there's a low hum, as he stops to take her measure, "It is still some distance back, perhaps too long for tired feet. A lady should not be making such a trek if she's tired."
What follows is a series of quick considerations of options (Though still sluggish by his standards). To his credit, the idea isn't the first in the list, but it ends up being the most viable, as the knight livens some at the thought. "Ah, I might perhaps have a solution," and he extends the available hand to her, "Do you trust me?"
