By the time I had arrived in Suncheon and settled down in my apartment it was getting late in the day, so I wouldn’t be able to do any major sightseeing but I still wanted to at least head out for a walk before it got dark. I looked on Google Maps and saw that not too far from the apartment was the river that flowed through Suncheon and alongside it were walking trails. A few minutes later I was at the river and started my walk. Several flower beds had been planted by the river and most of the flowers were still in bloom.

Further up river I came across a partially submerged stone pathway that stretched across to the other side, as well as some concrete structures that helped control the river. The sun was getting pretty low in the sky at this point.

At the next bridge I crossed to the opposite side of the river and then headed down towards the bridge where I had started my walk. Some of Suncheon’s older residents were also out that evening getting some exercise. Along the walking path and up by the highway next to the river were hundreds of pinwheels with Korean flags on them. It wasn’t particularly windy that evening but the wind was blowing strong enough that most of the pinwheels were spinning along as the last bit of light disappeared from the sky. Once I left the river I did some grocery shopping and then went back to my apartment to end the day.
