{Weekend in Tongyeong: Part Three}

Sunday in Tongyeong we woke up early and walked to the city's most popular tourist attraction, the Mireuk Mountain cable car.

We grabbed tickets to one of the forty seven gondolas and waited for our number to be called.  Waited for over an hour...
got bored and took some self-portraits...

... and finally got on the cable car.
(Note the Portland based Columbia Sportswear ads on the gondolas!)
It was worth the wait.  

The views of the area's many small islands were amazing from the mountain's summit.  Every direction was dotted with forested landforms.

We had a great time taking in the natural beauty and vowed to return to explore one or more of the mystic islands.

Our next trip to Tongyeong could be as soon as Wednesday (thank you national holiday!)  We plan to visit Somaemul Island, forty minutes from the city by ferry.  
We can hardly wait!
