this morning's short walk: Derwentwater foot and Nichol End

a lot of ducks on the pond ..

.. and a lot of water everywhere after yesterday's continuous rain

very muddy on the path - good thing I am wearing wellies

the boardwalk is invaluable

River Derwent very high ..

.. it has been over the path here

looking back after I have wallowed through with cloud covered Skiddaw behind

water pouring out of Derwentwater ..

.. which is fairly rough

looking down the very full River Derwent

Clough Head and Great Dodd

flood on the way to Nichol End

Skiddaw in cloud and Latrigg from Nichol End

here water is still the predominant theme ..

.. but there is a wee bit of sun on distant Blencathra

the path into Derwent Bank

Derwentwater with Clough Head beyond from the garden

the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road
