27-Oct-2013 -- Viene de 50°N 1°E.

Estando de vacaciones en Europa para visitar a mi hijo, como todo cazador de confluencia aproveché la oportunidad y visité 12 confluencias (una incompleta) incluyendo una en Francia no visitada hasta la fecha.

Después de haber cazado la confluencia 50°N 1°E el día previo, pernoctamos en Dieppe ya que disfrutamos de la belleza nocturna de la ciudad y sus restaurantes. Hoy salimos bien temprano del hotel y luego de un buen desayuno emprendimos viaje a 49°N 1°E.

El pronóstico del clima para hoy es que se desataría una tempestad, pero antes de que ir a nuestro objetivo, dimos un paseo por la costa de la Normandía y nos acercamos a bello pueblo Veules-les-Roses, con unas hermosas calles y los característicos acantilados de la Normandía.

Continuamos viaje a Saint-Valery-en-Caux, pero al llegar empieza la tempestad y decidimos ir a la confluencia. Nos dirigimos al sur por la carretera D20, luego por la A150 y la A13 donde hicimos una corta parada para prepararnos un almuerzo rápido en la vía.

Continuamos hacia el sur por la carretera N154, N155 pasamos por la población de Évreux, tomando en la salida la carretera D830 la cual nos acercaría a la confluencia. Finalmente tomamos la carretera D74 y la vía rural Rue des Mares y Allée des Fougères, donde estacionamos el carro a un costado para iniciar la caminata.

Había llovido recientemente, por lo que el terreno estaba muy resbaladizo, por lo que caminamos despacio para lo caer y en pocos minutos ya estábamos haciendo la gloriosa Danza de la Confluencia. Tomamos las fotos y volvimos pronto al carro ya que estaba haciendo 5°C y todavía teníamos que seguir nuestro viaje hasta Paris, cuya travesía aprovechamos para conversar sobre todas las bellezas que habíamos visto en este fin de semana.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 49°N 5°E.

27-Oct-2013 -- Comes from50°N 1°E.

Been on vacation in Europe to visit my son, as every confluence hunter I took the opportunity and visited 12 Confluences (one incomplete) including one in France not visited so far.

After having hunted the Confluence 50°N 1°E the previous day, we spent the night in Dieppe to enjoy the nocturnal beauty of the city and its restaurants. Today we checked out very early from the hotel and after a good breakfast we started to travel to 49°N 1°E.

The forecast for today was that a storm would be unleashed, but before going to our goal, we took a stroll along the coast of Normandy and we got closer to the beautiful village Veules-les-Roses, with the beautiful streets and characteristic cliffs of Normandy.

We continued to travel to Saint-Valery-en-Caux, but upon arrival the storm started and we decided to go to the Confluence. We headed south on the D20 road, then by the A150 and A13 where we made a short stop to prepare a quick lunch on the road.

We continued south along the N154 Highway, N155 went through the town of Évreux, taking exit from the D830 highway which would bring us closer to the Confluence. Finally, we took the D74 road and the farm road Rue des Mares and Allée des Fougères, where we parked the car on one side to start the walk.

It had rained recently, the ground was very slippery, so we walked slowly to avoid falling and in a few minutes we were already doing the glorious Confluence Dance. We took photos and soon returned to the car since it was making 5°C, and we still had to continue our trip to Paris, whose journey we took to talk about all the beauties that we had seen in this weekend.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 49°N 5°E.
