Tuesday, June 5, we took a ferry to Oedo, which is a privately owned island which they have turned into a beautifully sculptured European style botanical garden. The ferry ride provided some nice views of the islands off the southern coast of Korea. And as we walked the garden paths, one gorgeous scenic view after another unfolded before our eyes. Truly this was a piece of paradise!
Sometimes I felt like I was transported right into the imagination of Dr. Seuss!
We enjoyed some good Korean Food, a little bibimpap (a bowl of rice and vegetables with an egg on top) for lunch and an endless supply of meat at a Korean style barbeque house. Yes, it's customary to cut the meat with scissors and sometimes you grill it yourself. Meat, hot off the grill and dipped in salt or a broth, served in lettuce leaves with roasted cloves of garlic, a chili paste, and other veggies, makes for a pretty delicious meal!
Our final day on Geoge was spent at the beach. Rest and relaxation - heavenly!
