I 've always wanted to live in Shell Beach....only I am worried a tidal wave will come. In school I learned that a tsunami would never hit the central coast because our coast curves inward....the biggest part of the deadly wave would crash further out. Or maybe I made that up. Mostly I just dream about tidal waves. I know what it will feel like right before it crashes....at least when it crashes in my dream. I'm easily overwhelmed. And not just by the ocean.
