A hot summer day was spent exploring the River Derwent near Seathwaite, Cumbria. It's one of the valleys at the head of Borrowdale and as mentioned before in previous posts, it's one of the better known starting points for the walk to Scarfell.

Having crossed the river a number of times I came up to this deep pool, some children had been jumping into it from the rocks on the far side, it was a delight to see all the colours and crystal clear water, as just below and above the river was more rocky although this was mid summer and had been dry for some months, therefore the water level was lower than normal.
