#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison and Aase Tveitan Hutchison)

24-Jun-2015 -- At a brief stop in the charming town Boston we were told about a shipload of prisoners shipped off to America a few years before Mayflower made the journey. They apparently landed in what today is Boston in Massachusetts. They took the name with them.

We continued towards the confluence point. This visit was too easy. We stopped in a pocket by the wayside with a warning of angry dogs outside a house, asked a lady coming out of the house if it was ok to walk a couple of hundred meters into the newly harvested broccoli field to which she approved and then trotted off on the harrowed soil. It was a big field and at the other side we could spot teams and machines harvesting the broccoli. Back by the car we met the smiling lady who asked if we had found what we looked for.
