#1: The Confluence from 30 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

09-Jun-2018 -- This is the 12th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points in Poland. The story starts at 52°N 21°E and continues from 54°N 19°E.

After 77 minutes driving, we had reached the confluence location coming from the neighbouring confluence in the east. It is located in the forested Wdzydze Landscape Park with several little lakes.

We reached the confluence via the village Olpuch, continued through the pine forest and when the distance from the road was minimal (300 m), I jumped out of the car and quickly ran to the confluence using the straight approach. The hurry was due to the fainting daylight. Shortly after I had reached the confluence, Elionora reached the confluence by car, since there is an unsealed forest track that was not visible on our map.

This very beautiful confluence made an excellent finish for our long day. It was anyway clear that we would not have enough daylight to reach another point after this visit. This confluence is in a pine forest with high standing grass just 20 m from Chądzie Lake.

Since this had been a very hot day, we enjoyed a cool bath in the lake. Now the hectic was over. We didn’t break the former record of 13 confluence points in one day, but we have had fun - which had been our main goal.

After the visit we spent the night in the nearest town Kościerzyna (15 km north of this confluence). The next day did normal touristic sightseeing in Gdańsk and in the evening we visited our friends in Warsaw.
