A poor boatman's home(e)

Mud has been tracked all over the floor of this simple boatman's home, caking the brown dirt floor with a smear of red. The footprints seem to drift from the floor, to the simple table to the east of the home, then to the bed in the back of the room. Whomever left the footprints must have been exhausted, for it looks like they jumped into bed without removing their still muddy boots!
The west door is closed.
The only obvious exit is east.
