Bled Lake was a beautiful way to spend some of our free time in Bled. We took the customary boat ride in a Planta. This beautiful wooden boat with a canopy is rower by one man. This job is passed down from family member to family member to take people to Bled Island and is held in high esteem. This boat was named after his soon to be mother -in-law. He told us a story of how the lake it self is known for its clear water and large fish, saying they sometimes can be know as the loch ness monster jr.
