19-Apr-2005 --

On April 19, 2005, while visiting my son, daughter-in-law and our new grandson in the Brooklin/Whitby area, I decided to do a little confluence searching and geocaching. I noticed that this confluence was fairly close to my son's residence and even though it has had several other visitors, I thought I'd pay it a visit anyway. I observed a large farm field with wide open spaces all around and there didn't appear to be any changes to the area since the Stewarts' visit in April of 2003.

My return trek was a little over 12 kilometres in distance. It started from Brooklin and headed north on Ashburn Rd to Myrtle Rd. You can obviously drive this route but it was a great day for a walk so I walked. The conditions on this day were clear sunny skies and 28C degrees. Not too bad for a spring day. Actually, this would be a hot summer day most places in Canada, including my hometown of Corner Brook, Newfoundland.

I located the confluence at approximately 3:00 PM and was able to register "all zeros" on my GPS. I captured the area with the usual photographs and enjoyed the hike through farmland Ontario.
