Not far west of Paynesville are the very lovely and sheltered waters of Duck Arm and Picnic Arm. Farmland dips down to the shoreline and in the quiet evenings you can sometimes hear a young lamb bleating for its mother.
There's a beach that you can moor onto in most weather; there are also some public swing moorings. These are wonderful - to lie in bed looking up through the hatch at the changing pattern of stars as the boat gently swings on its mooring is one of the delights of living on board.
The other is waking to a sunny morning and slipping into the water off the stern of your boat for a gentle swim before a hearty breakfast.
On a more mundane note, there is a manual sewage pumpout facility in Duck Arm.
