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
