Left Mokpo and headed to Boseong Green Tea Plantation. We had a taste of the tea grown on this plantation, both in hot tea and ice cream form! The landscape is gorgeous! Our first view took our breath away.

After lunch, stop two was Naganeupseong Folk Village. We toured the village which has a town castle. JoSo were disappointed when they didn't see the castle they were used to (aka English style). The village actually has a town castle and traditional Korean style houses ("hanok") where about 100 families actually currently reside.

Stop three was Suncheon Wetland. The tour guide took everyone on a 1 km walk through the wetlands. As he spoke only Korean, Halahbujee went with the tour group and RoAnJoSo chose to walk around on their own. It is a beautiful conservation area, and while it was a hot day, there was a lovely breeze. We saw a weird mud creature whose name we still have to figure out. Halahbujee didn't know offhand but he said he'd look it up and let us know.

Our last stop was Hanwa Yeosu Aquarium. This was JoSo's favourite stop of the day. Very cool aquarium. All of us stuck our fingers into this little area where small fish cleaned your fingers. Halahbujee really enjoyed it as it was a brand new experience for him.

Checked into Namhae Hilton hotel after another very busy day. Time to rest up for another full day tomorrow. Good night!
