This was the view yesterday afternoon from By Lynn, the cafe on the edge of Yongsu village that looks out over the coast to Chagwido Island on Jeju’s west coast. It was cold and the famous Jeju wind made it feel even colder.
We had lunch in a little café overlooking Chagwido Island (on the right of the picture above) and Wado Island (further left). The sky was blue, the sun was hot, and the sea was sparkling. The café had a big picture window looking westwards over the sea so that we could take it all in as we had our paninis and smoothies. Glorious – that’s somewhere to take visitors, even if the fare isn’t traditional Korean.
The local squid-drying and bike-hire shop just down the road didn’t seem to be doing any business.
