|Remember this crashed alien spacecraft from yesterday's report here?|
Upon further exploration of Gaigano just north of the wreck (approximately at SLurl – I think it moves) is a secret LDPW sea lab. Every time I tried to approach the structure, an exceptionally large catfish-like creature would dart at me and drive me back. But I was able to take some photos to confirm that the Moles do work at the lab.
|This leaking LDPW barrel was just one bit of discarded trash that led me to the sea lab from the crash site. Actually, I could see one from the other, but I didn't notice that til late.|
|Outside the lab with my robo-cam. Little did I know the mutant catfish was behind me.|
|As long as I didn't move closer the guard fish didn't disturb my robo-cam so I was able to get this shot. The armed (with a pickaxe) Mole suspected nothing.|
|The lab has an experimental section, seen here, living quarters, and a dive pod with moon pool.|
|Usra "Mousra" Ostrich is a true Second Life hero. You may remember she was the base commander at Mos Ainsley (SLurl) during the big crisis there. I'm proud to call her my |

|This huge alien looked very familiar to me. It shouldn't, of course, but there was a time ...|
|I hope Mousra is alright. She reports no ill effects, but I haven't heard from her since she returned from the planet.|
The Oak Bay Aquarium (SLurl) is a wonderful place to visit, but the MerMole (native to waters around Bay City) on public view is only a hint to the strangeness you'll find if you can get into the high security building on site.
Or I could have merely missed that all these places are more or less public and that if I explored as often as I push others to do so I'd have made these connections long ago and either dismissed them or been trundled off by the Moles to Cloud Party so I wouldn't bother SL any more. Still, I wonder. It is all a bit too interconnected.
