An island where the red moon arises,Jawoldo Island
To see the red moon, I decided to go camping.
There are several beaches for camping. It’s your choice.
Jangol beach: It is close to the quay, and equipped with facilities. A convenience store and restaurants are available.
At night, it can be noisy due to restaurants-cum-bars nearby.
Keunmal beach: It is nice except for the distance from the dock.
Byulnangeum beach, Jinmorae beach: Despite some disadvantages – located in private lands and a bit far away from the residence area, it is an ideal place for those who want a quiet night.
About an hour later from Incheon, we arrived at Jawoldo Island quay. Semi-circular red sculpture, which is true to the name of the island, welcomed us.
Walking with the high sky and blue sea may be only possible in island trekking.
Commanding mountains and seas at the same time is one of the advantages of island travel.
An uphill climb was not easy, but we received a reward of beautiful scenery.
In a sense, travel is necessary because it is a way which enables us to come out of daily grind.
The freedom gives us a rest and comfort.
During island tours, we often meet puppies. All of them are very kind. Maybe they take after villagers’ simplicity and generosity.
It looked like a small town sit in a huddle.
Each personality created an unexpected pretty scene.
Accompanying friends gives another joy that can’t be found in travelling alone.
There is no steep course in the island, which is comfortable to looking around.
It is suggested to take a walk with families beloved ones in quiet villages of islands.
With expectations of seeing the red moon, we often looked up the sky.
Not to speak of the moon, the sunset was fascinating.
It is one of the privileges that can be relished in the West Sea.
It gave another feeling compared to daytime.
Jawoldo Island is a good place to lodge at homes, but I strongly advise camping.
Becoming part of the nature in this excellent background will greatly move you.
Conversation with a low-tone and whispering made me relaxed.
Instead of fluorescent light, the yellow glow of tent lightings warmed our hearts.
The night sky was beyond our imagination. It was full of stars. They were totally different from them that we saw in the cities.
They were much brighter and more.
Though it is not far away from Incheon, the night sky was a breath-taking view.
No one minded that it was not the red moon.
Here and now, the moon and stars comforted us. That is more than enough.
It was deep regret about leaving the beautiful island village.
The time that we had had in the island would encourage us to get back to daily life.
I hope the trip would be the red moon for all of us.
