An island where the red moon arises,

Jawoldo Island
The origin of Jawoldo Island A government official was exiled to an island under the reign of King Injo of Joseon Dynasty. At his first night on the island, he appealed his resentment to the moon, and then the moon became red with a thunderstorm. He was moved by the fact that even the heavens knew his innocence, and named the Jawoldo Island that means the moon became red.
Route:

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.

We decided to settle down at Byulnangeum beach with the permission of the owner.
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.
We took a left-side pavement.
Walking with the high sky and blue sea may be only possible in island trekking.
Climbing a ridge, we occasionally find view-points.
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.
At our destination, a beach, we made a fun of writing something on the sand.
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.
A puppy in a village showed curiosity about visitors.
During island tours, we often meet puppies. All of them are very kind. Maybe they take after villagers’ simplicity and generosity.
Everyone settled down on a grass.
It looked like a small town sit in a huddle.
Each personality created an unexpected pretty scene.
After pitching a tent, we took a walk.
