Haeundai beach

First a little word on sounding Korean names. My husband is working at the Hyundai shipyard and we drive a Hyundai car. At home this is pronounced with three syllables Hy-un-dai here it is only two Hyun-dai as the three syllable one is a beach; Hae-un-dai, which is about an hour drive away from Ulsan, in the next town down the coast, Busan.

And that is where we have spent today.


We met up some more new friends from school, this time we were very lucky Jasmin is in Katrine’s class and Gaetane is in Gregor’s.

As it is October I didn’t think they would go in the sea. Wrong.


Wave jumping, can’t beat it.

Yesterday we went to Ilsan beach, and got very cold; today I have come home a little bit pink. Oops, must remember sun cream. We then had a picnic lunch with traditional sand sandwiches and you had to eat your Pringles quick as the wind was blowing them away.

After lunch the four children made sandcastles, whilst the mum’s observed (sometimes maybe with eyes closed).



Here are some more pictures of the beach.



All tired out after a brilliant day at the beach.

      It is a great beach. It gets very busy in season but was perfect yesterday. Plus it can be way too hot in the summer. I’m liking this long warm autumn, the rainy season has stopped so sunny day after sunny day.

    My colleagues in Busan told me this is the most busy beach in the world in tems of visitors per square meter. In summertime that is.

      I’ve seen pictures of it in the summer and it is packed, but as soon as it stops being summer, seemingly regardless of the temperature, the beach becomes a lot quieter. I’m looking forward to going on a cold crisp winter day and see it in a different light. Thanks for stopping by my blog, you are the first comment I have had that isn’t friends or family – whoo.
