SkyWatch Friday Season 4, Episode 6

Thank you to the SkyWatch team for this weekly meme. To see more skies click here.
Last week Barry went to visit his mother in her retirement home in the Blackmore Vale. How could you not be happy with views like this? 
Hopefully, given time, she will be content.

  4. This does look like a pleasant spot, Janice. Nothing is quite like home, I suppose, but the view does look like it might win her over eventually.

  7. A lovely peaceful view always helps bring contentment to me. I would look for deer in that field in the evenings. Hope she settles in...change is difficult sometimes.

  9. It takes time to get used to changes when you are elderly, but I'm sure in such a lovely countryside contentment will eventually take up residence.

  13. Yes, beautiful views. I have given my husband strict instructions that if I ever have to be put in a home it must be one that will let me have a cat or dog.

  14. Thank you, folks :-)
    Barry's mother is 93 and has lived in this area for about 30 years so it is very familiar to her. Unfortunately, she has dementia which is progressing quite rapidly and it is impossible for her to return to her own home.

  18. What a lovely place Janice, such pretty countryside. Thanks for stopping by. To answer your questions, even though Mt Rainier is considered an active volcano, there is no evidence of any imminent danger. There is a very interesting website giving more info about it: http://skywalker.cochise.edu/wellerr/students/rainier/rainier.htm
