Inspect[ | ]

Exploring the shore, you find several small pools of light blue water, all lined with irregular white heaps. The shimmer of the sun on the water is magnificent. It produces a myriad of colored shimmering lights. Shades of green and blue dance on the water surface. The pools furthest from the shore add some nice brown and red to the shimmering palette.

You dip one foot into the water to test it. It's rather cool but it feels good. Satisfied, you decide to enter the pool. Your second foor slips a bit and you end up stepping on a sharp stone. It's only a small cut so no big deal, isn't it? Not quite... A few seconds later, as salt enters your wound, it BURNS. You can't stay there: it's too painful!

Failure
You extend your hand to probe the water. It's deeper. No choice, you will have to lean inside. You take a deep breath and proceed. Instead of aimlessly wiggling your hands in search of anything useful, you opt for a more proactive approach and open your eyes. That was NOT a good idea. The high salt concentration burns your eyes. You get your head out of the water. Your vision is all blurry now. That wasn't a smart move...

Success
You extend your hand to probe the water. It's deeper. No choice, you will have to lean inside. You take a deep breath and proceed. Opening your eyes in such salted water would be a bad idea so you will have to search blindly. You wiggle your arms in search of anything useful. You find nothing of interest besides algae. When you get out of the water, you realise your skin is as smooth as a baby's. Not quite what you expected but you enjoy the feeling on your skin.

But eventually you gather enough to use for cooking.
