This photo was taken on my iPhone 4s using HDR on Christmas Day as the sun set. Why is this my favourite photo of the week. I think because it was a beautiful end to a lovely Christmas spent with my brother who was visiting from Switzerland with his family, my 85 year old mother and my husband. To have the family altogether is a rare occurrence and one never knows how many more of these we will get. After eating far too much lunch my brother, his youngest son and myself went for a walk and explored the mangroves and then continued on to the footbridge where we were lucky enough to have a lovely sunset looking over the car bridge, watching the fish jumping and a couple of lovers kissing.  Then home to prawns.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
