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
