So, I have just experienced the largest earthquake I personally have ever felt. I did feel the San Francisco one back in 1989, but definitely felt this one more. We just had a 5.0 here in SoCal. I screamed, I totally admit it. Brian and I were just sitting here having a quiet evening watching tv when all of a sudden we were shaking and then before we knew it things were falling all over our living room. The rest of our little home was fine, but the living room had the most fallen. One of the pics behind our sofa fell on Brian. Not hard, but it fell on poor Bri. He and Snoopi went out to check on our car and it was fine.
It was so strange. The sound was horrible. All of a sudden we were shaking and I was thinking a car was going to be coming through the wall we were sitting up against. And then, all of a sudden, that is when the house actually moved from side to side in a very jerky manner and our bookselves looked as if they were going to fall. Incredible. I will not be able to sleep tonight. But, we are fine. No one was hurt. Just a little shaken up. I am ready to move out of California now. ;)

Santa Monica

Sunday after church we went for a drive up the PCH and ended up here. The sand was so soft and it was such a gorgeous day. It is fun to live so close to the coast.
