The Komorebi Estuary

South of the Estuary Cave on the way to Treasure Point is a location on the Syka Coastline that is truly lovely. The Komorebi Estuary is a deeply shadowed spot, speckled with sunlight that filters through the trees and splashes on the water creating a daily show of color that almost resembles living stained glass. The tropical waters team with life here, shallow and mixed with fresh water. Beneath the waist-deep water lies a plethora of crabs, lobster, and all sorts of bivalves.

There is a multitude of enormous freshwater muscles that can be found scattered across the cobbled estuary floor. They thrive in the brackish water and seem to do just as well with the tide in and salt mixing in as they do at low tide where the water is mostly fresh. The inside of the shells has an amazing coloring that reminds folks of sunlight striking oil and shimmering a rainbow of color.

Among the stone, shrimp scurries and provides a veritable feast for those able to net them with tossed out hand nets. Shorebirds and waders frequent the Estuary, harvesting its bounty for themselves. The hunting here is almost always good and more importantly, it is an incredibly peaceful place to visit.

Equal to the sources of protein, plants, and wild edible foods grow just as plentiful. There are sedges, grasses, and seaweed that are delicious and nutritious. There are also numerous kinds of mushrooms growing in this moist environment. Algae, moss, and other rock growers are numerous here and can provide incredible sources of vitamins and minerals for those who know how to forage for them.

There is a huge rock on the northern end of the estuary that the briny water laps. It is an amazing place to meditate and do some serious thinking. It is also a lovely place to fish from or even simply just soak in the calm of this somewhat holy place.

She came to Syka to find a new life. Escaping the persecution of her people worldwide with the disappearance of Morwen, Graclin hides in plain sight keeping her hair dyed and her emotions in check. She passes for simple human by staying in the shadows and developing her foraging skills which she uses to assist the Settlement. She keeps her contacts with everyone to a minimum and prays daily that Morwen will return.
