Since it was Memorial Day (June 6), many families spent the day in the park, soaking up the good weather. Our guided noted that "camping" was gaining popularity in Korea.
I loved these swan boats!
We followed our guide onto our open top boat. Many families brought picnics, including ourselves.
I don't have a fancy camera, but I was able to catch the mountains that "guard" Seoul to the North. Notice the faint white line on the mountain closest to the city - it is the Seoul Fortress (link).
I also captured the Seoul Tower on Namsan (I previously posted my husband's pictures of the Seoul Tower at night at this link).
We watched the sunset from the upper deck.
Dusk fell over the city, including the country's assembly.
We had company on the river.
After the cruise, we drove over to 63 City. I found this Hawaiian delight in the lobby. From Visit Korea (link),
With 63 floors measuring a height of 264m, the 63 Building is Korea’s tallest and most recognized building. The 63 Building boasts spectacular views of the Hangang River and the surrounding mountains of Bugaksan Namsan and Gwanaksan.
63 City offers an aquarium ... is this live or an optical illusion?
These penguins are live!
This is a photo of the glass floor atop one of the tanks ... despite the thick glass, it was intimidating to walk across it! The aquarium periodically broadcast "glass shattering" which jarred our nerves.
The seals had a great playground.
This leopard shark stared at the audience watching the synchronized swimming.
Andrew placed his hand in the "Doctor Fish" exhibit. The fish are also called "nibble" fish as the small fish nibble at dead skin. Doctor Fish are used in spas for manicures and pedicures but the practice is banned in the US.
After our fish manicures, we rode the elevator to the top for an eye popping view of Seoul's night lights.
