My first Real Earthquake

I was comfortably falling asleep in my tent last night, while camped at the Brod Bay beach campsite along the Kepler track.  Right as I was falling asleep, the waves on the bay starting picking up and I felt the ground calmly rocking back and forth. It felt as though I was on some sort of amusement park ride.  It was a surreal experience to be on the ground and have it move.

Turns out the quake was a 5.1 and had an epicenter about 70 km from where I was in Te Anau.
