The Haenyeo Diaries: Day 5

Some more photos taken the other day with the Haenyeo Halmoni. They were kind of enough to let me photograph them and also gave me some seafood goodies for helping them out. Actually, in true Korean halmoni fashion, she tried feeding me a raw sora (turban shell) but I just couldn’t do it since it literally looked like an eyeball socket. However, I did cook it at home and it was delicious.

Just a little fact I learned: two haenyeo are in their 70s and one in her 80s. The trio has been working together for over 60 years.
