this afternoon's short walk: Derwentwater foot

Derwentwater from the garden of Derwentwater Hotel

robin near the pond - possibly the same one we saw before our depature to Scotland for Christmas ..

so tame it settled on Rowland's stick

obvious that water has been over this boardwalk and washed up a lot of debris

looking up the River Derwent towards the lake

high water at Derwentwater foot ..

.. and this big branch which used to be out in or beside the lake (depending on water level) has been washed well inland

looking down the River Derwent from near its outflow

remnants of flooding with Skiddaw in the distance

looking back along the sodden path to Clough Head and Great Dodd

zooming in over Keswick to Clough Head

storm damage on Portinscale back road with Grisedale Pike in the distance

Swinside, Causey Pike and Barrow from the back road
