this afternoon's short walk: Derwentwater foot

moorhen by the pond in the grounds of Derwentwater Hotel

zooming in on Catbells from the pond

heading for the bank of the River Derwent

high water in the river

wellies are invaluable ..

.. so is the boardwalk ..

.. but we turn back here where the river has burst its banks

a more inland route takes us to the path junction

looking back along the flooded path with Skiddaw beyond

the lakeside seat

looking down the River Derwent from the lakeshore

the escape route to dry ground

zooming in on Skiddaw with a wee bit of snow

sheep beside Portinscale back road

Grisedale Pike from the road
