Preetz to Eutin
At around 03:00, I get waken up by a heavy rain shower. Luckily it's sandy soil, absorbing the water. Still, my rain fly will be completely soaked. An hour later I get ready. Waiting for better weather has never been my strength so I pack everything and head out into the rain. With calm winds I can use my hiking umbrella, making the walk much more comfortable. It's a lovely walk, along many smaller and bigger lakes. The scenery is reminding me of the one around Wetzikon, with its gentle hills, fields and the lake. Therefore, it makes complete sense that this part of Germany is called Holsteinische Schweiz and seems to bee a rather touristy area.
As the sun comes out every now and then, I use one of the sunny spells for a swim and wash in one of the many lakes.
As the day goes on, there are more and more rain showers. One of them extremely intense, flooding the path. Again, I'm happy to have my umbrella.
The dark clouds vanish from one second to the other. By this time, I'm already in Eutin, 50 kilometers done and in need for a place to sleep. With plenty of luck, I spot a secluded peninsula on the Grosser Eutiner See with plenty of space to pitch a tent. It's well past 19:00 and I am positive there won't be anyone will show up anymore. If there is and I will get a ticket, I will let you know tomorrow ;)

Wonderful photographs Sandro. So crisp and clear.
If it's any consolation we're up to day three of almost continuous heavy rains. The river is flowing super high. Waterfalls everywhere.
Sounds like we're sharing similar type weather. Yours will get warmer. Ours will get colder.
Take care. Stay safe.
