In a mucky trench among some cabins in a leisure residential area. Very close to the ocean.
I was passing through the area. My "plan" was a scribbled note and went something like:
- Drive north, take the first exit after Söderhamn
- Enter Söderhamn from the north, turn left at Brovägen and cross the stream
- Turn right at the three-way intersection, left at the second
- Drive for a couple of kilometres and turn left at the intersection with a small house next to it
Amazingly, I didn't get lost.
I parked a couple hundred metres just south of the hash. I knew it was located between two clusters of cabins and the exact location turned out to be in (or very near) a mucky trench. I decided to get it over with and just go in a straight line.
The bushes were really dense and I made a lot of noise pushing my way through. There were people around and I figured sneaking around in the bushes was only slightly less creepy than showing up on their doorstep claiming to be from the Internet. I was half expecting someone to confront me, if only to verify I wasn't a burglar scouting for potential targets. The area didn't feel very welcoming to strangers with lots of prohibitory signs posted. I'm not sure I was even allowed to drive there without permission but I didn't notice that sign until I was heading back.
Coordinates semi-reached. Navigation was difficult and I wanted to respect the privacy of the cabin owners, so once the GPS was within accuracy range (which was a bit stretched, I admit) I decided it was good enough. I then proceeded to 2012-08-07 63 19.
Photos are on their way as soon as I find a microSD reader. I was doing some underwater filming later in the week and my camera turned out to be less water-resistant than I thought. At least the memory card survived the ordeal.
