17-Aug-2013 -- From Courseulles-sur-Mer we drove to Le Mont Saint Michel. One of the places people should avoid in August because of the crowds of people.

On our way we visited this confluence point which was located near the E3 highway. It's quite easy to reach. This time I used my smartphone and it's navigation system took us directly to the farm where the CP is. I talked to the owner and asked permission to enter the field and walk to the CP. He said "rien", which means "nothing".

Yes, he was wright, there was nothing really interesting to be seen at the CP. He smiled and said it was OK to go on his field. We went along a fence. Unfortunately the zero's were on the other side of the fence. I did not climb the fence and took the photo's at around 4-5 meter from the CP.
