On May 10th there was a 2.4 earthquake in the wetlands near Bolsa Chica Beach. This is a stretch of beach and road that I actually like in the southland. For the most part driving along the beach in the greater los angeles vicinity is not a pleasant experience. Too many cars and too many people jetting across the road with beach chairs and beers in hand, make it a bit challenging for the casual driver. But this little area of PCH is different. The wetlands soften the landscape. It is not as impacted as other areas because people do not go to Bolsa Chica as much as the more popular Huntington or even Seal Beach. Just you in your car with your precious KCRW playing in the background and a lovely bird flying overhead in search of a meal to your left. If you are driving south on PCH.
