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
