|Welcome sign when you get to the island|
We then had to wait for about 30 minutes or so to get our ferry. We weren't really sure what we were supposed to do, but another nice man showed us where to stand and we just followed his lead. We had to fill out boarding cards with address and phone numbers and stuff on it, which was a first for me here. I had heard that the inside of the ferry wasn't very good and that there was a really loud narrator who gave history about the island in Korean, so to stand outside. Well the outside isn't that large of a place and you get crazy hair (which I was expecting) and also hit pretty badly by waves/mist. We stood at the back of the boat for most of the trip there once the boat picked up speed and started to really splash us. The trip lasted maybe 15 minutes and you could see some of the coast line and other islands. It was really pretty.
|Island coast line - all the islands looked rocky like this, at least in the areas we passed|
|Dallas was cold|
|The two of us standing at the front before the big waves hit|
|This is what my hair looked like for about 15 minutes. It didn't look much better after I got off the boat either.|
When we arrived at the island, we hopped off the boat and immediately had to walk up a steep walkway. Then there were paths that led in different directions to different parts of the island. We took the one that didn't require going straight up.
|One red camilla and a small white camilla bush - these were popular picture areas as there weren't many other flowers|
|Me in the vines|
|Kimchi pots near the one restaurant|
|Coastline from the end of the island back towards the middle|
|This was my favorite spot - it was a little open area and no people were there but it had great views|
|Me sitting on a wall overlooking another island. It was a little hazy so we couldn't see that well, but there were other islands all over the place.|
|Looking straight down from the wall I was sitting on|
|We were in the end of the line when this picture was taken - it went up a hill in the bottom right corner.|

When we got back to Jinju, I went home and showered and had a snack and Dallas went home and did who knows what (actually I think he did laundry). A couple of hours later I went over and we played Catan and had tea then watched X-men 2. I was very tired and fell asleep before it ended. Even though the island wasn't what I had hoped it would be, I am still glad that I went. It was really nice and now I know how to get to the port for my next adventure!
