this afternoon's short walk: a failed attempt to reach Derwentwater foot

a glimpse of Derwentwater from the grounds of Derwentwater Hotel

very high water up to the path to the lake

the flooded path to the lake

turning back despite the wellies - note the swans well "inland"

at the other end of the path - Latrigg in the distance

the path is almost part of the lake this afternoon

Derwentwater and Dodd seen over what is usually a boggy field

very windy in Portinscale back road

Swinside and Barrow from the road

crocuses beside the road
