a walk down towards Derwentwater foot


looking up the River Derwent from Portinscale bridge


flooded fields from the same spot with Latrigg in the distance


looking down river from the bridge


no hope of getting to the lakeshore today - this is the current high water point not far from Derwentwater Hotel


all this area is now part of Derwentwater


heading back to the Derwentwater Hotel


the other end of what is usually a through route - Derwentwater flooded up to this point


Latigg seen over the enlarged Derwentwater


high water at Derwentwater Marina


Walla Crag, Bleaberry Fell and High Seat from Derwentwater Marina


the jetty at Nichol End with Latrigg in the distance


unfortunately the overflowing lake water has entered the cafe at Nichol End


not an ideal day for ice cream under the sun shade


more like autumn than midsummer in Portinscale back road


Swinside, Causey Pike in cloud and Barrow from the back road
