At least the birds got a few extra mud-critters for lunch

This covers the first two-thirds or so of a tsunami surge cycle at Point Loma, in San Diego. A small tsunami sloshed around the entire Pacific Ocean on February 27, 2010, in response to an 8.8 earthquake in Chile.

As much as that this video is nearly ten minutes long, I wish it had been longer. I'm not sure I'd want it edited, either -- I like the everydayness of it, the way people are talking to each other, and their wonder at the water.

I'm working on a bigger post about Chile, which I'll post in 12 hours or so.

I think you may mean Point Loma. :)(which is directly across the entrance of the bay from the town where I grew up.)

Yes. Please blame my desperate urge to post this before I fell asleep, while I was fighting slumber. ;)
