[edit] Plans

Drive there after swimming and having lunch. Distance from home is about 42 km, maybe 70 km by road. Probably won't make it before 3:00 PM. Then visit some geocaches.

[edit] Expedition

Phone's navigator showed 65 km distance from home. I passed the hashpoint just before 4:00 PM. Then drove back and forth few times before deciding to park 120 m west by houses.

The point was on a street in residential area of detached houses. Hashpoint was well visible only from one house. There were trees and bushes on both sides of the street. A path led from the hashpoint to a rock on the north side of the street. There I found a triangulation point's benchmark bolt on 14.3 m altitude. You can see that in the topo map. Height of the hashpoint was 4-5 m above sea level. This time I also left a marker.

Temperature was about +10°C. Sun was shining brightly. Gale wind from the north made the weather quite chilly.

Check Hanko in Wikipedia. It's a nice little town with sandy beaches, old wooden villas and interesting wartime history. There's more life in the summertime than now.
