Sunday morning on Seonyudo, we went biking early, the sun was quite strong considering it was only 9am and how strong the winds had been the night before.
As you leave the guesthouse area there is a large and long hill on a turn to take you to the main part of the island.
Then we continued along the shoreline but turned inland to a small village. Here there was some artwork painted on the wall to decorate the village. Everyone took turns posing but the giant wings which seem common in Korea.
Behind the village was a small harbour with a lighthouse. It had a giant red hand held up motioning you to stop. As we reached the lighthouse the inscription said it was actually two palms pressed together in prayer. If you make a wish here your prayers will be answered.
Biking back inland
The owner and his wife saw us off and had been great hosts. They are actually a retired couple from Gyeonggi-do province outside Seoul and have only owned the business for about a year.
