Beaches, a temple and restaurants: Busan day 2

So, our Busan adventures are continuing.   We moved to our new hostel which is right above Haeundae beach.  Went down in time to see that sand festival was underway.

The sand sculptures were beautiful.   They were  mostly themed after fairy tales.  Alice in Wonderland and the Wizard of Oz were especially fantastic.

From there I went swimming in the East Sea.  It was so outrageously cold.   At first it hurt just to be in the water.  But after about ten minutes I warmed up to it.  I spent a good forty or so minutes floating in the ocean.

From there it was on to a beachside Mexican restaurant.   It was called Fuzzy Navel,   and their fuzzy navels were excellent.  I got a burrito and nachos.  They were pretty good.  The Ambiance was excellent, but the service was pretty poor.  Look for a review later this week.

After that we took a long trip to Boneghusa temple right on the beach.  It was beautiful, it even warmed the shriveled heart of this seasoned atheist.   Still not buying it but at least it was pretty.

After that we headed to another beach.   The water there was really weird.   It didn’t really get deep even like meters from the shore.   So I couldn’t really swim.

Then we headed out to  find some dinner.   We found a pork barbecue to eat at.  It was shockingly delicious. There really wasn’t anything amazingly special about it, it was just great Korean food.   Maybe I was just especially hungry after walking around and swimming.

Now we’re about to head out for some drinking and some Noraebanging.
