Agents 32 and 33 of the nebulous entity known as psecret psociety are assigned to the North Coast of California (USA) to check out a dome-shaped, almost-an-island feature for possible clues. The circular hike yields amazing views, strange occurrences, curious finds, odd dialogue, surreal thoughts, and chance encounters. Back at the bus stop, it appears that the whole day has been a loop inside of a loop. Ernie must be having a good laugh.
