my weekend~

Mini Road-Trip to go clamming (about 2.5 hour drive from Incheon- optimal knitting time~)... Korea is very hilly~ saw lotsa rice paddy's along the way~

"Mhat"조개 (clam) catching~ basically... the water receeds from this beach at low tide... and people go to work catching the 조개~

The video was the 1st catch of the day~ with commentary by my uncle~ he cracks me up~ The process to catching the clams... is to 1st lightly shovel away the top layer of sand, this is reveal holes in the sand... sprinkle salt into the holes to lure the clams up~ and then pull the clams out before they start to borrow back into the sand~ they can be quick little buggers!
After working all morning... the tide began to rise... so we made for shore~ to have a Korean style picnic~ with BBQ'd pork, ra-myun and kim-bap~

post~ low-tide

We drove back to Incheon,... and off I went to stay the night at my cousin MiYoung언니's house~ and of course we went out to eat... really good KalBi~

She has a super cute... and well behaved doggie... his name is ShinDoRhee~

This morning... we took the double decker Seoul tour bus... on the course that visits the Palaces in the area

Short visit to InSaDong (traditional Korean items) shopping alley

Seoul City Hall

(protesters demanding Korea stop importing US beef~)

Chun-Geh-Chun(man made stream~) filled with water from the Han River- in the middle of Seoul~ it was beautiful~

Ooo I was wondering where you were. The 조개 look... Weird I guess. Never seen any of those before. Everything just looks nice. Ooo there's actually an audio thing on the bus? Or... Meh. Palace looks nice, kinda expected the take off your shoes sign somewhere. Errr... That place selling things not for me. Ooo... Stream looks so nice, I want to see that place now. Well I'll talk to you later bye.

Our Uncle is so funny~ Where is his Bejing hat? You know you and our cousin look alike? I want some good galbi~ Don't forget my accessories. Jonathan and Andrew will be going to public school next year so I guess cute school supplies would be nice. It would cost me a loan for them to contiue in private school. See you during the week of Jun 25th
