These are a few selected photos from what is probably our last day at the beach, this time in Korea. After spending 3 months in Japan we see Korea as having a totally different energy and I think this shows it quite well.
We arrived in Busan on the ferry from Fukuoka which took 6 hours, that marked the end of our Japan trip. We are now on a new adventure making our way through Korea to Shanghai to catch the boat to the USA. We had no idea what we would find in Korea but a few surprises awaited us.
Beachi is the term used in Japan and and as far as I can make out also in Korea.
We got in last night and we heard there was a beach, the best beachi in Korea, not far from our AirBnB apartment in Busan. We couldn’t wait to get our feet back into the water having spent those splendid days drifting lazily in Amami Oshima. Especially as this is the end of our beach days for a while.
We donned our bathers and got the 1001 bus straight to the beach, what greeted us was different from what we pictured in our minds, especially after Japan.
The rest of the photos are scenes taken as we walked along the beach to find a spot for our towels. All was in a mater of just a few minutes.
In Japan but also here in Korea they like their inflatable rings but this beats Japan hands down. For $5 you rent a beach umbrella, two mats to lie on and two inflatable rings. Hats you must bring from home!
We aimed the camera and shot, somehow it produced these results. There was so much going on you couldn’t fail but capture something.
But so do the photos
In reality the beach was one big adventure play ground for the young and the old, I could have easily used up ten camera batteries taking photos. Just looking-on was fun but we also joined in, if only my camera was waterproof.
As the day moved on things slowed down a bit.
As the beach was instructed to pack away at 5pm (everyone out of the sea was the announcement) it had a look, well for me at least, as though an invading medieval army had set up camp in front of the high castle walls with ships and sails still in the distance, these of course were the life guard lookouts and the beach tents.
I hope you enjoyed these shots as much as we have…
