(visited by Ross Finlayson)

16-Jul-2009 -- From looking at maps (and the reports from previous visitors) I knew in advance that this was going to have to be an incomplete visit (because, unlike Hermann Grebner, I didn't have a boat). However, I wanted to get close to the confluence point, to get a good photograph of where it lies in the water.

Just south of Skjervøy, I parked on a gravel road that passed 730 meters south of the confluence point. From there, I walked to within 340 meters, and took my photo.
