(visited by Joan Ludevid and Nicole Wulf)

31-Mar-2001 -- A sunny day, good for traveling 300 km by highway to the south to test our 4th confluence point. Previous visits: N42-E03 N42-E02 N52-E08).

The point is inside a field of orange trees. The trees were flowering and the smell was really good. The problem is that there are a lot of small owners, and water divides some fields, so it was really difficult to walk in a fixed direction.

The place is, at last, very easy to reach. And luckily the GPS marked 40º00'00 0º00'00 hanging from an orange tree. 10 m over see level.

Near there is a geodesic point where we checked the acuracy of the GPS.

Later we went to the harbor and eat the typical rice dish with fish called "paella".

Another good day.
