[Tunnel of Sorrow]
The current widens out into a small pool or slough where thousands of heavy-leafed waterplants fill the expanse with their sickly green growth. Plate-sized, each leaf lies limply upon the water with lines of dried scum around each rim where the passing of other boats as their small wakes stir up the murky flow. Here and there, marsh toads croak out their dismal mating cries.
Obvious exits: none.
