On Friday, I didn't leave work until almost 11 because we were going over the summer schedule which starts next week. At the end of that, my co-worker brought out some left over cake from her boyfriend's birthday the night before and we sat and ate cake (with chopsticks). Later that night, Dallas and I watched "Rise of the Guardians" because I had never seen it. It was pretty cute. It took a little while to fall asleep, but eventually I did. I set my alarm for 9:15, because we were going to the beach in the morning and I wanted to get a decent head start.
We didn't end up leaving until about 10:30 though. We caught a bus and Dallas had made egg sandwiches for us for breakfast. We ate those, then some celery sticks with peanut butter. It was weird when he pulled out a butter knife from his bag, but then he took out the jar of peanut butter and it made sense. The ride took about an hour and then he hopped in a cab. I took him to Namildae - the beach Krista and I visited a couple of weeks ago. Dallas hadn't been there yet and while it's not the prettiest beach, it's close and easy to get to. It's a little pretty too.
Just like when I was with Krista, we rented an umbrella and tubes. I went to the beach in clothes this time, because I wanted to try and take some decent pictures with ummm cleavage support and not crazy hair. It was really hot when we got there though, so Dallas whined about it and we decided to go swimming first. This led to me sitting under a towel and changing on the beach because the bathroom was too far away. It was slightly awkward, but I was able to do it without anything popping out. We went in the water for a long time - around an hour or so. There were a lot more people this time too and they sectioned off the water, so we had less of an area to swim in. This time they had banana boat rides, but it was $15 a person for like a 15 minute ride, so we decided not to do it.

|The people next to us were geniuses because they brought an air mattress. It took awhile to fill because he had a hand pump, but they brought that thing in the water and took naps on it.|
|Lunch - soju shots, ramen and mixed nuts! That's how you do it.|
|Babambar = chestnut ice cream. Those smiley faces are liars.|
|The sky was a bit cleared this day, so some pictures are better than when I went with Krista.|
|Some guy called this the elephant trunk.|

|A Korean guy talked to us for like 10 minutes about the arch. Neither of us had any idea what he was saying. Then he asked if I would take his picture. So I did. Then he made Dallas and me go up too.|
|Shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk, red beans, fruit|

After that, I went home and did dishes, then went to Dallas's house where he cooked some duck breast and we ate that, cucumbers and lettuce for dinner. Then we played rummy (I won!) and went on our Sunday night walk. We ended it a little early because tomorrow (and hopefully for the next 3-4 weeks while I'm on summer schedule) we're going to the gym in the mornings to do strength training exercises. I'm nervous about it, but we'll see how it goes. I'm hopefully about to play Catan with my brother too! So again, another good weekend in the ROK.
