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
