Muuido for Chuseok 
2013/09/18~20 @ 무의도 [Muuido]

Every fall, we get three to five days off work for 추석 [Chuseok] holiday. This year, we went out to 무의도 [Muuido] for an undetermined amount of time. I was going to stay for only one night, but I ended up staying for two. I almost stayed for three nights, but was talked out of it. I was happy to be dissuaded after the fact. The first night, I was hanging with Erik and his coworkers, along with all of my coworkers. Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos the first day. The second day, more of Erik's pals came out, and so did my camera. It was a wonderful little break from life.
