15-Авг-2010 – От точки 47°N 43°E мы вернулись по своему пути, пересекли реку Маныч и, не доезжая до Сальска, свернули на северо-запад к следующей точке. За 1 километр до хутора Красный Октябрь ушли с асфальта на полевую дорогу в южном направлении. Вокруг поля подсолнечника. Удалось подъехать на расстояние 160 метров.

Точка расположена в Веселовском районе Ростовской области в 2,0 км от хутора Красный Октябрь. Рельеф – равнинный, везде поля, много лесопосадок. Слияние находится на поле с подсолнечником. Растения здесь поражают своими размерами – высота более 2 метров, толщина стеблей до 7 см. Фотографировать пришлось высоко подняв руки над головой.

Немного отдохнув и перекусив, мы отправились к Таганрогскому заливу Азовского моря. Там расположено слияние 47°N 39°E.


15-Aug-2010 – From the confluence 47°N 43°E we returned along our way, then we crossed Manych river and then turned northwest at some distance from Sal'sk town. And we went to the next confluence point. At one kilometer distance before Krasnyy Oktyabr' village we went away from asphalt to the south onto a country dirt road. There was sunflower field around. We drove up to the CP at 160 meters distance.

The point is located in Veselovsk district, Rostov region, at 2 km from Krasnyy Oktyabr' village. The terrain is plain. There are a lot of fields and forest plantations. The confluence point is located on the sunflower field. It surprised us that the sunflowers were 2 m high and their stems were up to 7 cm in thickness. We had to raise our hands up to take pictures.

We had meal and rest for a little while and went towards Taganrog bay of Azov Sea. The next confluence 47°N 39°E is located over there.
