La Brea Tar Pits 7.29.08

We drove into town today to visit the La Brea Tar Pits. I have lived here for several years and have never been. It was pretty amazing. But the amazing part was that as soon as we arrived and were walking over to Pit 91...there was a 5.8 earthquake centered just East of where we were...and we didn't feel it! haha...

Yep, that's right...we didn't feel a thing. See, we were walking and talking, not paying any attention. When we arrived at Pit 91 everyone was filing out talking about the swaying water, the swinging chains, & how freaky it felt! Bummer...another earthquake I didn't feel. Oh well! We checked out Pit 91 - a 12 foot hole in the ground that has been excavated since 1969! It was crazy what they have found in those holes in the ground. Just amazing...animals I've never heard of and lots of them.

After the earthquake, they closed the museum for about an hour so we sat in the sunshine, listening to a guy play his guitar & banjo until it opened back up. We toured the museum and then took off & headed back to Port Hueneme - back to Roberta's House!
