Hallim Harbor

I've always wanted to get some pictures at the harbor at Hallim on the western end of Jeju Island. I loved the colors of these lady's aprons. They were right in front of the boat so I couldn't get their faces, but we did talk to one of the workers who came from Bali! He was so friendly! Jeju is nice, but I can't imagine leaving Bali for Jeju!

Sashimi and Soju

Yesterday, on one of Troy and I's semi-regular cruises, we ran across these local fishermen and their picnic near Samyang Beach. They were really excited to see us and gave us a taste of their freshly caught sashimi (japanese style raw fish). Unfortunately due to riding the motorcycles we couldn't partake of the soju!
