Rick's Roadshow: Jeju Island, South Korea, Day 2

Rick's Roadshow from the Jeju island in South Korea continues. The weather was quite nice yesterday, perfect for hiking and enjoying the natural island terrain. My business colleague wanted me to see a few more sights of his native home, so we spend part of the day outdoors. We hiked up to the top of some very high peak- as you can tell from this photo above left. It was a breathtaking view for sure. Below is an interesting rock just off the coast. A legend about a woman whose husband went off fishing and never returned, waited by the coast for her husband so long she turned into a rock, waiting a long time, but he never returned. A cute story, nonetheless.
"The Lonely Woman" Rock- a legend of sorts













I mentioned at the end of yesterday's post that we took a little cruise around the island. Here are a few photos:
this rock is beautiful, isn't it?

this rock has some more of those hexagon shaped rocks
















I was happy that the waters were nice and calm!



the reflection garden at my hotel
















































the Hotel Shilla was very cozy
















The hotel hiking paths led to this stunning view






















Thought I'd close with a couple of dragons, just for fun.

I'm off to Beijing next, so stay tuned for more from Rick's Roadshow from Asia.

As you always do, taking me along on your trips via your blog posts and gorgeous photos, I never would have thought you'd transport me to South Korea though -much less that the water is so beautiful (awesome color!) and the other shots you posted, just make for a lovely visit! Can't wait now to see what you show me from Beijing!
