Jeju-do #4: Hallim Park

Hallim Park was a bonzai garden, mini-zoo, cave complex, miniature folk village, and botanical gardens -- all rolled into one. There was something for everyone to enjoy.

This was too funny. There were a pair of these stone elephants on either side of a bench. Claire kept running back and forth between them, kissing them. Check out those lips!

As soon as she learned of our trip, Maeve kept asking when were we going to the island with the oranges. (Jeju-do is famous for its oranges and tangerines.) So I knew we'd never hear the end of it if she didn't see her oranges. Fortunately, they were everywhere. There were orange trees outside the airport. Groves and fruit stands were everywhere.
