30-Июня-2012 – Из всех слияний Ленинградской области эта точка с красивыми координатами – самая близкая к Санкт-Петербургу. Вполне логично, что она и самая посещаемая. Но вот что удивительно – все визиты на нее сделаны зарубежными охотниками. Ни один наш соотечественник до сих пор там не побывал! Ситуация наконец исправлена :)

Тот факт, что точка находится в трехстах метрах от берега, не должен пугать. Вода едва доходит до колен, и в летний период до нее спокойно можно дойти, не замочив шорт. Вдобавок, она хорошо прогрета, а дно песчаное и чистое. Лишь изредка встречаются камешки да ракушки.

Мы с младшим сыном в приподнятом настроении дошлепали до конфлюенции и моментально поймали нули на навигаторе. Да, одно удовольствие ловить координаты на мелководье!

30-Jun-2012 – This spot with “nice” coordinates is the nearest to Saint-Petersburg among all confluences in Leningradskaya oblast'. It is quite logical that it’s the most attended as well. What is amazing – all visits were made by foreign hunters. None of the local hunters were there! At last the status quo was changed :)

The fact that the spot is in the water in three hundred meters from the land should not scare. The water barely comes up to the knees. In the summer it is safe to walk there without wetting shorts. In addition the water is well warmed and the bottom is sandy and clean. Just occasionally one can see small stones and shells.

Me and my younger son in good mood splashed through the water up to the confluence and in a moment caught all zeros on GPS. Yeah, what a pleasure to catch the coordinates in shallow water!
