this afternoon's short walk after another very wet morning: nearly to Derwentwater foot


a glimpse of Derwentwater from the garden of the Derwentwater Hotel


Catbells from the pond with a moorhen towards the left bank


very wet beside the path after this morning's torrential rain


the boardwalk is very valuable ..


.. but at the end the riverside path is swamped


retreating along the boardwalk


an approach by the middle path is no more successful ..


.. so it's back to the hotel ..


.. and Portinscale village


as expected an approach from the west leads to a flooded path


returning by Portinscale back road


Grisedale Pike from the road
