This is so cute.

Very good dog crashes every street view shot of this South Korean island

If you explore the map, the island itself is lovely too, beautiful ocean views, fields, a wooded path with interesting things along the way... there's a cool silvery monument in one spot along the path. I haven't found a way to link directly to that location. But (looking at the overview map), it is right near where the path along the east side of the island forks in the middle.

The island is called Jukdo.

(After more wandering along the map-path) This island is like a video game! One page I read said the island has only 3 families; another page said it had 2 inhabitants. And that the island has no running water, that rainwater must be collected, or it must be brought over from the nearby larger island of Ulleung.

But judging by the map-photos, it must be a somewhat popular tourist destination. There is a small building at the southern loop of the path, which appears to have bathrooms. There's a wood fence along the path, with many little rest/overlook areas and picnic tables/benches. There's another building with signs in front, which may be a restaurant. There are signs/markers along the path (in Korean, so I don't know what they say).

Ah, now I feel I must post some screenshots after all.

Philip Bonneau's photostream on flickr. Very artfully posed male subjects (mostly), for a change.

In case you've been considering the rewarding joy of having a pigeon companion, this photo shows the minimum standard of accommodation that they will expect you to provide.

aaah no!!!

Being a vegetarian myself, with 2 mostly-vegetarian-fed dogs, this struck me as quite funny.

Color photos of America from 1939-1943
Neat. Photos in color make the past seem more real and tangible to me than black & white ones do.

awesomeness

Forestfen would like to move, since there is a lot of vandalism and crime where she lives now. So we were looking at a few houses today... the nicest looking house also happened to have this in the bathroom:
See the big pirate rubber-ducky with the 2 little duckies, and the 3 froggies?... )

Isn't that the cutest?!! The house is vacant, but that little setup sure made the house feel loved and happy, and as if those duckies and froggies were eagerly waiting for the special person who would buy the house.
