(visited by Jack Frickey and Cheryl Corrigan)

21-Feb-2010 -- Cheryl and I were en route from our home in suburban Washington, DC to Miami and a Caribbean cruise. For this confluence, 28N82W, it is easy to get within the requisite 100 meters, but difficult to get to the actual confluence. It is some 25 yards north of the Parkway Frontage Road N that runs alongside Polk Parkway (beyond the embankment seen in photo #3 to the south) near the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. We parked just off of the road at a gated entrance to the pond area surrounded by a black chain link fence. I walked from there along the fence (see photo #4 to the east with Cheryl and Cassie, my Toyota Camry in the distance) to the location closest to the confluence. The confluence lies 20 yards north in or near the far edge of the pond seen in photo #1. There is nothing particularly remarkable that hasn’t already been reported by the ten previous visitors.
