#1: Looking towards the North.

(visited by Rob Millenaar and Peter Millenaar)

10-Jun-2000 -- After we nailed our first confluence point we went on to our next target near the city of Heerenveen in the province of Friesland in the North of The Netherlands. We walked for about a kilometer before reaching the right spot near a ditch in a beautiful meadow with black Friesian fullbreeds grazing in the distance. We were glad to reach the confluence before the ditch; this was a close call as you can see in the pictures.
