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
