Jasmine and her dogs.
A fun little shuttle boat. Manpower and a cable.
ah finally Jaz gets her octopus!!
And now she’s hugging her dried squid that I finally gave in and bought.
Then devour yummulicous squid.
Meanwhile, the only thing Cameron will eat here is rice.
Sweet love birds!
What’s for dinner? Well, we could have some blowfish.
Or smorgesborge of whatever this is.
Sea urchin, crab or clams anyone?
Jasmine will just munch on a bag of tiny fish.
Or perhaps some octopus legs?
Or how about stingray?
Ok, I know, how about some big gian worms? You must be salivating by now!
A nice sunset from our balcony.
Sokcho – the eastern beach of S. Korea
This town is known for its live fish markets. Saw many live fish, turtles, gigantic worms, octopus, and a ton of dired fish. Stingrays, teeth and all just waiting to be purchased and eaten. Here’s mr. crab about to be eaten. Just rows and rows of live fish.
The highlight for Cam and Jaz was riding around on a motorcycle. Sorry Cindy (times 2) I know you will highly disapprove of no helmuts. But, well, they just don’t have any here.
Cameron found a fellow racer.
We went up to Mt. Seoraksan. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and there were beautiful temples here as well.
Cameron practicing his rock piling.
What a very relaxing day we had.

The War Memorial
Jaz and Cam learned all about the armed service. Jasmine later asked me if the soldiers were going to or from work when she’d see them on the bus. Since my father and Jonathon’s father served in the Korean war, I explained their role when we were at the Korean War section. She kept asking me, “Is your dad here”. I had to explain that he was not there 500 years ago, but 60 years ago and finally found some battle ships that sort of explained dad and papa’s role in the war.
Jasmine was so happy to find her double wing airplane.
Future Army candidate?
The “turtle boat”
The poor lad who jumped on this boat ended up with the spikes through their feet. Jasmine was very concerned that the people who belonged on the boat would get their feet poked on the spikes when getting on the boat.
Fascinating armor in the Jeosen period.
Depicting the refugees during the Korean War
This comes in handy when they complain about their dinner. I keep reminding them that they could be eating fish in a can. They pipe down after that and seem to somewhat appreciate the foot on their plate.
