(Lexie's Point of View)

A Small Stand of Palms
[Exits: north west]
Tall palms reach skyward, the wind through their tops providing a
comforting music. The shade they provide is a welcome respite from
the harsh desert sun, and beneath them, scattered here and there,
are the husks of fallen fruit. A low flat rock deliberately set
beneath one large palm seems to be a perfect spot to sit and rest
for a time, soothed by the rustling of the fronds that drifts down
from above.
The sky is rainy and a cold northern gust blows.
