Come for the miracle, stay for the seafood. Feel like Moses as you walk across the sea via a land bridge temporarily formed during low tides in the spring season. Don’t forget to stop and smell the seaweed or collect fresh shells for your dinner. Every year, thousands of Koreans and foreigners come out in their colorful rain boots to make the same trek to Modo Island that legend tells a grandmother once made to escape the tigers of Jindo. Today, you can join the grandmothers with picks in hand as they dig up the moist earth for abalone. If you visit during the official festival in April, you can use your entrance ticket to dine at one of the outdoor restaurants serving an abundance of seafood. Other festive events may include a Jindo dog show and traditional Korean circle dances. Cheap (and ultra thin) rain boots are available in nearby stores if you don’t want to bring your own.April 10, 2012 Like Add a Comment
