Literal Vortex

…The pin dropped not far from my house, in what looked on the map to be a forested area, but when I arrived I saw there is a path leading off the road into the woods, straight towards the pin, so in a went. To the right there is a small stream/creek and going a little ways in, right by the Randonaut pin I encountered a small pond on the left of the path.

The result was a small persistent standing whirlpool in the pond, also known in fluid dynamics as… a vortex!…
