This weekend we made a quick overnight trip to LA to meet up with friends, who also flew into the city of angels, to see a play. The trip, though short, was special.

Standing at maybe about 1,000 feet above the ocean, you can watch small puffs of clouds flow in and up the walls of the cove. As… Continue reading
Well, we had a little earthquake last night: magnitude 2.4. I find them to have personalities. This one shook the house in what felt like a north/south direction and actually originated just a few miles south of the house, out in the bay itself. (Click to enlarge.)
