today's walk: an attempt to reach Derwentwater foot

there is a lot of water quite high above the lake

the duckboards are nearly underwater ..

.. and we are not going to make the circuit without long wellies

looking over the swollen River Derwent

the other path gets us slightly closer

Skiddaw across the flooded area

approaching from the other end its just as deep

daffodils beside Portinscale back road looking to Swinside, Causey Pike and Barrow

pheasants amomgst the daffodils
