Jeju-do #2: waterfalls

Day one in Jeju-do: Waterfalls and more waterfalls. We started the morning at Cheonjeyeon Falls. It was just down the road from our hotel. Actually, it was a series of falls, which meant a lot of hiking down and up stairs.
Our next stop was Cheonjiyeon Falls. For those of you paying attention, that's right, there is only one letter difference in the names. Imagine trying to hear the difference, especially when you have a hard time hearing the nuances in spoken Korean as it is!
Claire was asleep when we arrived at the 2nd set of waterfalls. But she woke up before we made it to the end of the trail. There, she and Sam entertained some schoolchildren on a field trip with their teacher (she's in the blue shirt, wearing a hat).

Our final tourist stop for the day was at Jeongbang Falls. Just as we left the parking lot and started down the entrance steps, Maeve's reaction was, "ANOTHER waterfall?!" This one's claim to fame was that it emptied into the sea.
