In Genesis 24:62 we are told that Isaac had just come back from the vicinity of Beer-lahai-roi before he went out la-su'ah basadeh.
(1.) Midrash Tanhuma, Shemot 10, implies that the narrative function of the previous verse, Genesis 24:62, Isaac had just come back from the vicinity of Beer-lahai-roi, is to add a well element to the description of Isaac meeting his future wife, as the meeting at the well is a common motif in the narratives of Jacob and Moses meeting their future wives.
