Jeju Island Day 4 on Bromptons

The three of us staying at this accommodation while the rest were staying at the next building.
After a simple ramen breakfast we were ready to continue the journey.
It was Monday morning I was expecting a heavy traffic and crowded office workers but it wasn't. Maybe I forget I was in a layback place where thing is slow and easy life style.
Taking the directions of Oregon obediently we were nipping through small and quiet roads to get out of Seopwipo City centre andd the road here looks straight and monotonous.
Black pork (heuk-dwae-ji) in Seopwipo seem to be popular so is their abalone porridge and grilled mackerel. Saw this sign while on the road.
The place where mass were conducted in protest of the massive construction of the naval base in Jeju Island.
Catholic priest Father Mun is known for his commitment to protest against state-sponsored war base, human rights and destruction of eco system of the island.
We wish Father Mun all the best in the struggle.
The stretch between Jungmun and Seopwipo is scenic, flat and esay to cycle.
So far Zuyi has been doing fine with the cycling though long sitting on the saddle was a bit painful.
Beophwan Village is the southernmost village in Korea, it has the largest number of Haenyeo lady divers and its traditional culture has been properly preserved. 
Stamping booth @ Beophwan Badang
We were having fun with this mural at the centre attraction of this village.
Oedolgae Rock in Seogwipo where we took a detour down hill to the place and it was surely a big climb back to the cycling route.
Finally we completed the climb back from Oedolgae and back to the route to Seopwipo City.
A peep into World Seashell Museum (GPS : 33.247579, 126.551655), the entrance fee is 6,000 won per person.
The famous art street named after Lee Jung Seop whom has contributed significantly with his distinctive paintings and drawings in Seopwipo.
At one of the several corners of the art street.
A small museum devoted to Lee Jung-Seop (1916–56). Outside, on a lovely manicured lawn with fragrant trees, is the traditional Jeju house in which the artist lived for a short time in 1951. 
Seobok Exhibition park @ GPS : 33.245046, 126.570886
The weather was superb for the day.
Soesokkak stampin booth - an estuary nearby called as Soesokkak Estuary (쇠소깍) where the fresh water meets the ocean. Soesokkak is also well-known for its small, flat wooden boats called “Teu” that have been used for hundreds of years to ferry people across the estuary.
Seogwipo is the second-largest city on Jeju Island, settled on a rocky volcanic coastline in the southern part of Jeju Province, South Korea. In July 2006, Seogwipo's boundaries were expanded to include the entire southern half of Jeju island. A UNESCO World Heritage site and 2002 FIFA World Cup host.
The ride towards Pyoseon, we hope to get as close as possible to this place.
Villa at Pyoseon for 100,000won a night for 7 of us, the best deal we had for the entire trip.
A secluded restaurant by the seaside where we had our delicious mackerel and abalone porridge.
The Stage 3 has been able to put us towards south eastern of the island for a day run of 50km. Well done teammates. Til then tomorrow will be another stage to go.
