Wolmido Ferry

Originally uploaded by katevsnow.
The last weekend Matt was here visiting, we decided to take a trip out to the Incheon Islands in the West Sea. Saturday we took the subway an hour and a half to Incheon. From there we took a bus to the Wolmido Port, which is a promenade strangely similar to the Santa Cruz boardwalk, with carnival rides, candy vendors, etc.
From Wolmido, we took a ferry to Yeongjongdo (the large island where the airport is). While waiting for the ferry we noticed most of the families buying big bags of shrimp chips. As we got onto the ferry we noticed low flying seagulls. Children and their parents began throwing the shrimp chips up in the air, while a seagull caught about one in every large handfull. Needless to say, with the force of the wind and with the ferry moving, there were shrimp chips flying all over the deck. Justin began holding up a single chip, letting the seagulls hover awhile and then quickly take it out of his hand. The people around us were thrilled and began doing the same. The ajashi in the photo was holding up his daughter while she shreaked everytime a seagull got near.
