(visited by Thomas Barthel)

25-May-2022 -- On the way to a short holiday trip to Paris, I took the chance to visit two confluence points. The second one was 49° North 03° East.

From the Autobahn A4 I took the exit No. 18 Meaux Est direction East and took the junction on the road No. D17E direction North. After passing the village Isles-les-Meldeuses we crossed the river La Marne on a often photographed and since the last visit in 2018 new painted bridge. I parked the car directly behind the bridge, right in front of a small electric transforming station. Now I walked back to the bridge, crossed the smaller part of the river La Marne, reached the island and took a very overgrown track down from the pedestrians way to the natural ground. The path was really hard to find and maybe I missed it, but in the end I reached the closer area of the CP 49N-03E, located only two meters away from the water. The quality of the pictures is not the best caused by shadow from the trees and the sunlight shining partly through. I also took a picture from the sluice, direction Northeast from the CP.

After this visit we took the road D405, passed Meaux and reached Paris soon.
