an attempt to reach Derwentwater foot

the flooded path in the grounds of Derwentwater Hotel

this is what it looked like yesterday but I still failed to get through

today we are better equipped in wellies ..

.. but this is as far as we got - looking to the seat at the foot of the lake

turning back with some of the houses of Portinscale ahead

boardwalk near the river

Walla Crag and the flooded campsite over the River Derwent

Portinscale bridge

looking into the Coledale fells from near the river

Skiddaw Little Man ..

.. and again in sunset light
