Haeundae Beach

This is the beach we live on.  Haeundae Beach - the most popular beach in South Korea during the summer.  Having lived here since the beginning of June, I've been waiting on the crowds to roll in so I can see just how busy they mean by "most popular".  June and half of July weren't too busy at all, but the past few weeks have gotten increasingly busier by the day (even weekdays).  I'm told that August will be even busier than this.  Go ahead and put your hand under your chin to catch it as it drops when you look at these pictures I took yesterday (Saturday around 3:30 pm) from the top floor of our building, the Pale De Cz.  You'll be hard pressed to find an umbrella not occupied.

Remember how I told you before there's not much parking in this city?  Well check out as those cars on the right.  The ones coming toward you are headed for the beach.  We finally saw a handful of tow trucks out that afternoon towing cars that were parked in the middle of streets or on sidewalks.  It was a really awesome feeling knowing that we had a parking spot in our parking garage waiting for us later when we pulled out in this mess to go to the grocery store.
Those are rocks, not seaweed.  Clean water!
This is a normal day out here lately with a blimp in the air and sailboats, ferries, fishing boats, and jet skis in the water.  Every now and then you'll see a helicopter come cruising through, which absolutely makes Connar's day!
