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
