WATER; PART ONE. (22/10/14)

It’s a dull windless day and spitting with rain. This morning we wandered and waded our way to Lodore Falls. I’ll split this post into two. I have lots of pictures which surprised me as it didn’t look at all promising when we set off.

_MG_0707    The River Derwent with Skidaw in the cloud.

_MG_0709        Our route was flooded. I thought it might be and debated whether to risk wellies or opt for trainers. I chose wellies and was lucky as the water came within a couple of inches of the top. I hate walking in wet wellies.

_MG_0722       The dogs had to paddle and swim. This shot was taken on the way back and for once the level had dropped an inch. Usually when I commit to a flood it rises. I can get back via Grange but it’s a mile or so on the road and I don’t enjoy walking on roads.

_MG_0724       The rain still held off.

_MG_0720       Almost.

_MG_0703        A Dead Tree.

The next part will be all pictures of the wonderfully named Watendlath Beck and Lodore Falls.

  2. Can't believe how much it flooded and so quickly too. Skidaw image with the cloud covering the top of the mountain looks impressive

    1. Douglas, it is supposed to have all been sorted or improved since the big floods a few years ago.
      The first is my favourite.

  3. Looks like quite a bit of flooding there. The dogs seem to be enjoying it though.

    1. Keith, I am going to Keswick tomorrow. I wonder if it will be flooded. This top end often floods. The dogs regard it as fun. It tires them out swimming for a few hundred yards.

    1. Margaret, I am happy with the first one. It sums up this corner of England. There is little the dogs don't enjoy.

    1. Cloudia, I should have taken more of the dogs but I was watching where I put my feet. I didn't want a wellie full of water.

    1. Maria, they don't mind a swim. Molly had to stop for a rest on a clump of rushes but for a dog with short legs she copes.
