We took the first scooter tour of the spring. Cassie, Austin, Emily and I went to Gapyeong. It wasn't too far, just around 15 miles or so from Namyangju. In any event, the weather was balmy, the company was good and the food tasty.
We stopped for a quick break at a rest stop with a quirky art collection.
That's some fine craftsmanship.
We passed a dam, which created a long lake. It was still frozen solid although the temperature was around 55 F or 13 C. The air temperature dropped noticeably when we passed the dam into the valley.
After several hours of scootering, we needed nourishment. We chose the classiest option, an old boat converted into a restaurant.
Cassie modeling for the Sunset Crusie:
Donkas, or fried pork cutlet with sweet barbecue sauce. Served with seaweed rice, pickled radish, pickles and salad with thousand island style dressing.
Seafood rice with mussels, shrimp, abalone, sesame seeds and seaweed.
All in all, it wasn't a bad way to spend Korean independence day.
