#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison)

11-Dec-2011 -- After a couple of days in Porto we had to head south again. My wife accepted my hunger for one more confluence point and we went eastwards, first on motorways and then on smaller, more charming mountain roads. The weather was all right, but as we climbed the hills it got colder and up at the wind mill park the clouds were partly covering the mills and the temperature about 3-5°C.

Just before we arrived at the wind mills, we saw a sculpture of a hunter on a small hilltop. At a closer look he turned out to be alive. A moment later we saw one more man with a gun. Probably hunting rabbits. We parked just 229 meters from the confluence point, at the foot of mill No. AG0. From there it was easy going to the confluence point in a light, cold breeze.
