2nd November

this morning's walk: Nichol End and Derwentwater foot


Causey Pike and Barrow as I walk to Portinscale back road


autumnal in the back road


looking over to Ullock


zooming onto Swinside ..


.. and onto Catbells


the gate at the end of the back road


in the garden of Derwent Bank


looking across to Lonscale Fell and Latrigg


a wade needed to get onto the jetty ..


.. and my usual path to Nichol End is under water


Skiddaw from Nichol End


very high water at Nichol End


returning through Derwent Bank garden


the path to Derwentwater foot


the path is flooded as it approaches the foot ..


.. and as it leads to the boardwalks


looking back westwards


no surprise that the seat is in the lake


looking back towards the lake after I have negotiated the flood


River Derwent very full


a lot of water by the boardwalks ..


.. and beside the path


Derwentwater Hotel


looking down the garden


the big bend in Portinscale
