The beached blue boat on Seonyudo island


Beached boat

A stranded blue boat on the Yellow sea. Seen on Seonyudo island in South Korea. 17 people piled up in a mini bus, happily playing Mafia and singing our hearts away while inching our way through the traffic from Seoul on the long weekend. Reaching Gunsan in after 5 short time-flies-when-you-are-having-fun hours and then took the hour and a half ferry ride to Seonyudo island.

Passing through numerous uninhabited tiny islands against the blue of the sky and sea was a enchanting experience.

Sunset was a stunning with the gorgeous colors of the orange ball reflecting on the water...


 Fishing, understandably the major occupation of the area was evident to see and smell!


 With the tides receding, the sand had this wonderful pattern on.Very less crowds meant pristine and untouched areas of beauty.


Another interesting time pass is the catching of the Jangu mollusc by scraping of sand on the beach and then finding the hole where the mollusc is probably hiding and enticing it to pop out of its home by pouring a bit of salt. Seeing scores of people patiently waiting to catch their lunch was a one of a kind sight!

  7. Thanks for taking me on the journey with you. The contrast between the crowded city and the isolated beach must be immense. I could almost smell the sea from your description.
