SkyWatch Friday #47

My thanks to the SkyWatch team of Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise for bringing this great meme to us every Friday. If you want to join in you can click on the button above.
My theme continues over at Walney Pond. The pond is part of the Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly, Virginia and you can find out about it here and there is a map of it here.

    PS. Are you aware that many blogs with the Follower widget are causing IE not to be able to load the page? It has been suggested that the widget be removed, or moved to the bottom of your blog so it loads last. I had to access your blog with Firefox.

  32. Hi Denise - have just been having a read through your blog and looking at your photos - really enjoyed it. Would love to know where you're from originally, as I live very close to both Paignton and Torquay (and Newton Abbot) - perhaps we're from the same village?!
