this afternoon's short walk after a very wet morning: failure to reach Derwentwater foot then Nichol End


Derwentwater is very high


I waded in a short way but it got too deep


this is Rowland's turn round point


swans can just be spotted through the reeds ..


.. and the ducks are enjoying it having abandoned the pond


approaching from the other end I did no better


Latrigg with Blencathra beyond seen over the flood


looking over the flood to Skiddaw


Clough Head and Great Dodd as I retreat to the gate


the snowdrop carpet at Derwent Bank


the jetty is under water ..


.. and so is the one at Nichol End


sun on Latrigg from Nichol End


Skiddaw from Nichol End


a submerged rowing boat with Lonscale Fell and Latrigg in the distance


Derwent Bank hfholiday guesthouse


the croquet lawn


I go down to take a closer look at the submerged jetty
