Sailing & Jangdeung beach

Standard
“But time, it is like charm. You never have as much as you think.”
Khaled Hosseini – And the Mountains Echoed

The weeks are continuing to fly by, and the weekends seem to go even faster. The weekend of June 15th was spent sailing in Yeosu, and then lounging on a beach about an hour away (by city bus) to relax and camp. IT is absolutely gorgeous there, and was our second time visiting this beach. Our first time (a few weeks ago) we decided to head out to Jangdeung beach to explore, and since we had spent the weekend camping by the time we got there our phones had died so we were unable to take pictures. I am so glad we decided to go back to camp, because it is easily one of my favorite beaches in Korea so far. Secluded in the countryside, quiet, and stunningly beautiful we decided to pack our bags on Saturday spend the day/night on the beach. It was such a peaceful weekend. So wonderful to explore the area that we live in! We had been traveling every weekend so it was incredibly relaxing, and laid back to stay in Yeosu.

Saturday morning- We got invited to jump on board a morning sail cruise around Yeosu with elementary kids who were sailing! We were really excited, and it turned out to be a gorgeous morning on the Tall ship!

All aboard :)

All aboard 🙂

Some of the best adventures are right in your own backyard. I keep finding myself wishing for more time. More peaceful moments with people I love. More sunsets, more beaches, more mountains to climb.  What adventures have you gone on in the past week? I want to know! Was it planting flowers, a walk, a bike ride, or reading a new book? Fill me in. I love new adventures.

About Elicia Shepard

I'm unique just like you. I've learned every person has a story which makes us who we are. One minute I am here..then I am gone. Discovering unknown places and people is an addiction I am proud of and will be an endless journey of mine. Smiling is not a pastime it's what I do. I live for moments that take my breath away. Falling in love is the greatest feeling-and the biggest risk. I thrive off of risks.Challenges. Adrenaline rushes. Making others smile. Art is all around and in ourselves. I love taking an unknown path not knowing where it'll lead. Mystery is beautiful. Compassion, kindness, and love- things I will always strive for. Know what you believe in. Stand up for it. Never be afraid to feel. Time waits for no one.Ever. Children inspire me. God fires me. Happiness is being with those you love.I am really blessed. I think God is love and forgiveness and I think he wants us to be good people and love EVERYONE. Figure out who you are and what that means to you-It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself (and you deserve it.) Live frugally on surprise. Breathe. Be who you are. Be an outcast...If you wanna find me I will be where the wind blows...Wherever that may take me.
