#1: The mainland

(visited by Penko Roussev and Bogomi Roussev)

16-Aug-2003 -- Whoever wants to visit this point, will be filled with positive emotions for sure. He would really confluence with the sea and the beautiful river end of Kamchia River. There are more than 43 tree types, plants and lianas in this region. The fish is more than 20 kinds in the River Kamchia. When we entered the region at about 16:00, we asked some people to drive us to the place. They were the people who drive tourists on river trips at Kamchia. They had never entered the Black Sea through the river end because due to the low level of showers this year, the sand had been an obstacle for the river to flow to the sea. We were forced to use another way of reaching the sea. We went to the water and pushed the boat to bring it to the deep waters of the Black Sea. Naturally, we were the fun for the tourists in the boring afternoon hours at the beach. Through a tour boat, with a speed of d a 6-10 km/h, fighting the sea waves, we were reaching the point of confluence. I was feeling as a “captain of a ship”. As, according to my calculations, the sea current was taking us South, I launched a speeding course against the current to reach the point. When we reached the 28th meridian we turned off the engine and left ourselves and the boat to the current to finish its business. Not everything was so easy because it appeared that the battery of my mobile phone, I was using to make photographs, was discharged and I had to borrow captures from the digital video camera. In a distance, the shore was seen as a nuance of the blue. Thanks God, we had some wonderful weather to get back to the shore. I hope I would not reveal a secret if I advise you to not depart for this point from the village of Shkorpilovtsi. There are military, and they will make your visit to the sea harder. I have taken pictures of the continuation of the 43rd parallel at the surface. In the part between Shkorpilovtsi and the Kamchia Resort, the nature is virgin and you can meet almost no people at the beach.
