today's walk: another failure to reach Derwentwater foot

Catbells from the pond

water seems just as high as 2 days ago - hardly surprising after yesterday afternoon's rain

this is the riverside walk path

zooming in on Bleaberry Fell from the hotel garden as we turn back

the water seems a bit lower on this path - I can actually reach the signpost ..

.. but not much further - Clough Head and Great Dodd in the distance

Latrigg with Blencathra behind

an unusual shot of the Skiddaw massif reflected in an enlarged Derwentwater
