Sadly, last week we stopped in Jeju for the last time. The island is very quirky, but I enjoyed each day I spent there. Instead of trekking out to see lava tubes, some girlfriends and I decided to have a relaxing day on the beach. It was the first beach day we’ve had since leaving Florida!
Shortly after arriving at the beach, we bumped into one of the new ice skaters. He had to go back early for training, but left us his Frisbee to play with. I must admit, I am terrible at Frisbee! I had fun trying though.
While we were playing, we befriended a group of American and Canadian guys that were also spending the day at the beach. They were part of an overnight ferry tour from Seoul, where they’ve been teaching English classes for the past year. After spending so much time with Chinese guests and crew, it was nice to meet some other Americans!
We grabbed lunch on the patio of a small restaurant on the beach. They had delicious smoothies and sandwiches. I’ve gotten a little sick of the food in the mess, so I thoroughly enjoyed having a good meal!
After lunch, we took a little walk and ran into some other friends from the ship. We spent another hour or so on the beach with one of our singers and some of the shop workers. It was great to have time to talk about things other than work.
I made it through home with a little sunburn and a big smile. It was a perfect day!
