(visited by Arthur Breitman and Mathilde)

28-Jul-2004 -- We followed a tortuous path through nettles (ouch) by the side of the Marne to get to this charming confluence point. I must confess the expedition was mostly improvised, a mere road GPS led us to the point (still marked with a polystyrene chunk, we placed a wooden stick through it). We will remember from this journey the walk through the small town of Isles-les-Meldeuses, the excitement to find all the landmarks we saw on the website, the bridge, the cosy little railway station... the camera flash card's filesystem... corrupted. ARGH !

On the northern riverside of the Marne River, very close to the water.
