[Tongyeong] - Jangsado Sea Park (장사도 해상공원)

After about a 45 minutes fun Cruise ship ride accompinied by hundreds of seagulls flying along from Tongyeong to Jangsado.

Miss Mermaid gazing to the Terminal waiting for the Prince.

Thank you seagulls, I know you would like to show us the beauty of Camelia Island, right? Do take care and fly back safely to your home ya...

 It was a sunny but windy day, good weather to explore this 'silkworm' shaped island.

 Korean drama-addicts will know these 2 famous dramas on the big board. 

Yes, here was the filming setting for "My Love from the Star" (별에서 온 그대), "Uncontrollably Fond" (함부로 애틋하게) and "One Warm Word" (따뜻한 말 한마디).

 Sorry Cheon Song Yi, let me borrow your love 
Mr Do Min Joon for a minute, please...

It's completely impossible to take a nice photo when there were about 100 over visitors standing there in their various poses... so we went to other places first and then returned back just for these photos. Which is why you can barely see anyone. Ok, admit I'm crazy!!!

Cheon Song Yi: "Where are we now? Did we leave Earth now?"

Do Min Joon teleported her because she asked him to bring her to 
a place with nobody. They landed at this tunnel full of Camelia flowers.

But not many red flowers were left when we visited...

Worse was Do Min Joon was not there, so I'd to   imagine that this pole 
which shows the filming site was actually him sitting there.

It's recommended to follow the route based on the number stated on 
Visitor Guide Map. By doing so, you can stroll the island 
perfectly within 2 hours and not marathon running like us.
 (Our route: 1 =>  2 => D => 11 => 12 => 13 => 14 => 4 => 2 => D => 16 => 18)

The most outstanding Outdoor Concert Theatre I've ever seen.

 Everyday you can watch free "4D movie experience" in the midst of lovely vegetation, 
listen to the sounds from the sea and smell fragrant flowers!

 A panorama view of the theatre.

Sculptures of large heads compared to our small heads.

 Failed photo... my head should have been lower.

Cheon Song Yi envies this Yeonriji (연리지 = Love Tree)
because the two trees became one and now live together forever.

View of the theatre from Owl Observation. 

 Coastal Scenery from Owl Observation.

This was where Cheon Song Yi told Do Min Jun that 
they will live here together, just the both of them...

 Small Church

 Nuvi House Restaurant with the mascot of Jangsado, the "Silkworm"

 The herb garden outside the restaurant, with enviable bushes of
Rosemary growing wildly. I killed so many of them though
I took good care of them like my precious babies! Its a really hard to please plant!

Had a small quarrel with hubby as he said that we should skip the
Rainbow bridge because we were running short of time and
walking down to the pier will take 15 minutes.

I insisted and said that I would go there myself if he didn't want to come with me.

This Bridge was featured in drama "One Warm Word"
and "Uncontrollably Fond"

At the end, he followed me too because he afraid that I might lose my way ;P

This bridge will link you to 3 other observatories, but we really didn't have time unless we could
 fly and I'm not Cheon Song Yi, so Do Min Joon wouldn't budge even I call him for help!

On our way back to the pier...

Greenhouse and blue sea.

You can find Sculptures and artwork displayed at the various places here...

and more at the Outdoor Galery (where Song Yi and Min Joon took a selca).

 Wish I can lie there and enjoy the view too.

The park is well designed with direction signs to lead you to the correct way.
 Time needed to go to departure pier: 20 minutes (from Owl Observatory)
or 15 minutes (from Restaurant)

Oh no... it's not walking but instead climbing down these endless stairs.

 But, it's really worth the trip even with the running and the sweat...

I was out of breath and a was relieved to see that there were
still many people that have yet to board the ship.
