23-Aug-2001 -- Going back to North Brittany after a few days camping in Fouesnant on the south coast of Brittany, we travelled past Quimper, a few miles west of the confluence. The last time we'd checked the Confluence web site, it still was in the "to do" list so we decided to go for it. With the road map we had, approaching by car was quite easy and we parked with 200 meters from the point. Reaching it required to cross a field with two white horses and following the west bank of a little stream. The exact point was in an uncultivated area, a wet meadow slowly becoming a wood. Because of the trees, the GPS equipment was changing coordinates and zeroing all the figures was a little tricky. It seems that the first visitor had a harder task because he didn't want to disturb the horses!

23-Aug-2001 -- De retour en Bretagne nord après quelques jours de camping sur la côte sud, nous sommes passés par Quimper à quelques kilomètres du point N48W04. La dernière fois que nous avions vérifié sur le site web de Confluence, il restait encore à visiter. Une approche en voiture facilitée par une bonne carte nous ammena à 200 mètres de l'endroit. Il fallu encore traverser la pâture de deux beaux chevaux blancs et suivre la rive ouest d'un petit ruisseau. Le point de confluence est dans une zone de jachère assez humide en train de retourner à l'état sauvage (nombreuses orties!). Le point GPS était assez fluctuant (sans doute à cause des arbres proches) et l'arrivée sur cible a été un peu délicate. Nous avons apparemment eu la tâche plus facile que le premier visiteur qui n'avait pas voulu déranger les chevaux!
