  60°N 29°E (visit #2) (secondary) 

#1: view to North: the white cliffs of Cape Stirsudden

(visited by Captain Peter and Leon Leprozo)

25-Aug-2004 -- I am really happy with my new Olympus Digicam! Although I do not understand even one percent of its function and options, I enjoy the 30x Zoom which I am using full power! Gone are the days when I had to hold a binocular in front of the lens.

Thanks to the new camera I can now submit far better pictures of 60N 29E.

The view to the North shows the Northern coast of the Gulf of Finland with the white cliffs of Mys (Cape) Stirsudden.

Looking East we see already the Anchorage Areas No. 4 and Nr. 101 with a lot of waiting ships for going up the channel to the Port of St. Petersburg. Having a careful look on the picture in front we see the buoy Nr. 12, marking the centre of the fairway up to the anchorage areas of St. Petersburg's Pilot Boarding Ground.

To the South we see the industrial area of Sosnoviy Bor (this means: Fir Tree Forest).

A tank is under construction near the coast.

Meanwhile we received the order from "St. Petersburg Traffic Control" to proceed to the Anchorage Area No. 4, in order to wait for the pilot which is supposed to board in the early next morning up to the port.
