This past weekend it was off to another of Korea’s many festivals. This particular one happened to be the Jindo Sea Parting Festival where, for about an hour, the water actually parts and you can walk from the shore to an island a short distance out and back. Korea’s very own version of Moses and the Red Sea.
First of all, the most important thing to consider for such an epic occasion is, of course, your footwear. The Koreans always think of everything and therefore we were all able to purchase the appropriate foot coverings to go traipsing around in the sea.

|I was shocked by how fast and far the tide went out.|
|Some old ladies (with their beers) picked a prime watching spot.|

|Of course this photo had to happen.|
|All the Koreans were snapping photos here, so why not join in the fun.|
There was even a lovely little parade down the middle with flag bearers and little old ladies banging on drums.
|Sing it girl!|
