Our home lake (Plön) is about 10 kilometers long and 2- 9 kilometers wide. The majority of paddlers will pass trough the big lake on the main route to follow the river Schwentine. That way they will miss the the east side of the lake with it´s little secrets. A small secluded bay that is surrounded by decidius trees consistig of weeping willows, beech trees, ash and alder. This bay is a great retreat in the buisy summertime.
The lake has the shape of a west german whine bottle wich has a pretty round belly and a rather short throat, thus I call it Bocksbeutel lake (the name of this kind of bottle).
