14-May-2015 -- This is the 7th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points along the 51°N-line. The story starts from 51°N 14°E.
After a drive on country roads of almost an hour from 51°N 9°E, we reached the vicinity of this confluence. Our navigation device fooled us again by guiding us through the mine located north of the confluence point. We turned the device off and found our own way through the village Littfeld (1 km to the West). We took an asphalted county road named Grubenstraße followed by a forest track such that we could park our car at a distance of 110 m from this confluence at 1:33 PM.
The confluence is located in dense spruce forest. The “confluence” picture is taken from a little clearing in 50 m distance. Elionora is not showing the victory sign with her hand, but the Chinese number “7”, indicating that we have achieved 7 confluence points already this day.
Again, we didn’t hang around for a long time at this confluence, since we planned to visit another 5 confluence points before end-of-day.
