Chuseok vacation is practically over folks. I believe most people have returned from their family gatherings and sunny-beach vacations to their lives at home. Speaking of sunny beaches, that is exactly where JH and I ended up the afternoon after our visit to Oedo island.
The next thing I know I saw people swimming in the water and having a good time. We decided to go back to the pension and change. Luckily we had enough time to enjoy a nice swim.
Gujora beach is known for it's sandy beaches and warm waters, but I think there is something else that has made it famous. This would be that foreigners frequent this beach. Indeed, while we were there it seemed the cluster of foreigners outnumbered Koreans. Even JH remarked on this saying how when he was there four years ago, with his buddies, he saw foreigners at this beach. When two bikini clad foreigners walked past us he seemed to think they were the same ladies he saw last time. haha
few have blogged about it. This beach is even listed as a best place to live by Dave's ESL cafe standards.
Anyways, I couldn't help but feel envious towards those living near a beach as glorious as this. JH had a good time and seemed to unwind from his life of daily work stress. At one point I was resting on the shore making a drawing and I looked up to see him jumping over the tidal waves.
All I have to say is that this place created a lot of great special memories for us. After our fun in the sun and surf we headed back to the pension for rest and dinner. We made galbi that night with some simple side dishes to go with it.
