Suncheon Bay. An amazing natural tideland.
3 buses, 2km through marshes, 4km through an amazing canopy…

… To finally get that amazing view on the Bay.
Korea is surrounded by seas on 3 sides and the mud distributed on the Korean seashore is one of the world’s biggest mud flat, together with the Georgian coast of U.S., the East Coast of Canada, the Amazon estuary,  and the North Sea coast facing U.K.Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.18.11 Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.18.29Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.18.55

As Korea’s mud flats have gentle gradient and shallow water, plus a big amplitude between ebb and flow of the tide, they are the perfect place for crabs, worms and other species to develop.

Which makes it the perfect place for birds to do shopping.Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.23.03Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.23.27Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.23.45Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.23.17Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.25.32Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.25.45

Alex is starting to worry though. Capture d’écran 2013-10-16 à 15.16.38

Indeed, only Korean women are visiting those sites. So, where are their men?
What do we really have in our plates?
Hum, here, the food chain makes birds and crabs happy. And what if it was also making Korean wives happy?!?
