Afternoon on the beach

Was all the hassle driving worth it? Yes, we had a fantastic afternoon on the beach.

Our closet beach is Ilsan beach, which is on the Dong-gu peninsular. Depending on which was you look it is very picturesque:

or very industrial:

The cranes you can see in the background are part of Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which is the ship (or oil rig) building part of Hyundai. Which is, though not pretty, the reason we are in Korea.

Not that the children were interested on the view, they were far to busy with sand construction.

These structures are individual forts / nests. Here are katrine and Gregor waiting for the tide to come in.

As you can see, it was pretty overcast most of the day, but still warm so the sea breeze was welcome. Didn’t notice anything at the time but we have all come home pink.

The best bit about today’s outing? It has given me the confidence to explore a bit more and it seems there is a fair bit to explore round here.
