30th September 2012

this afternoon's short walk after a very wet morning: Derwentwater foot (nearly)


very muddy on the riverside route ..


.. and the boardwalks party under water


very wet approaching the River Derwent


not a very inviting seat today


returning along the boardwalk after onward progress proved impossible


heading towards Derwentwater by the easier middle route


still too much water to make our standard circuit or reach the lakeshore


heading back to the Derwentwater Hotel


an equally impossible attempt to reach the shore from the west


Skiddaw Little Man from this track


the Skiddaw massif from the same track


looking a bit autumnal on Portinscale back road


Grisedale Pike from the back road


autumn is coming
