today's walk: just got to Derwentwater foot in wellies

sunshine over the River Derwent at Portinscale bridge with Skiddaw in cloud behind

Portinscale bridge

still floods in the fields looking to Latrigg

on Portinscale bridge looking to cloud covered Skiddaw

fire in the grounds of the Derwentwater Hotel

very muddy on the riverside path

the boardwalk is really helpful keeping us out of the water

looking down the very full River Derwent towards Latrigg

the very wet path to Derwentwater foot - wellies essential!

Derwentwater foot

the continuing path with wellies still a good idea

zooming in over Derwentwater Hotel to Dodd

zooming in on Latrigg with snow on Blencathra behind

in Portinscale back road

Causey Pike(in cloud) and Barrow with some pheasants in the foreground
