(visited by Karl Bryk and Heidi Peschl)

15-Aug-2016 -- This is visit number 7 in a sequence of 7 visits made while on holiday in Sweden. The previous is 57N 14E.

We had wanted to take a very scenic slow route to the CP so I directed my car Navi to take us via some small places by the side of lakes. These instructions however confused the device and we found we were going around in circles. I have never had this experience before with my Navi which has proved to be reliable and accurate. So we set the route to fastest and had an easy and quick drive to the CP.

We parked about 100 metres from the CP and had an easy walk to the CP. Usual photos, etc, and we headed back to the car. We took a slightly different route back to the car - a matter of a few metres difference - and I found my right foot unexpectedly up to my ankle in water. Maybe we had been lucky on the way out to the CP.

Otherwise the walk back to the car was easy. This proved to be the last CP visit of the holiday. A total of 7 visits in 8 days, and some great and beautiful places visited. Can't wait till next time!
