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.

  3. I was waiting for Sally to post her entry for this week, but I don’t see what we in the antipodes have to wait for the rest of the world to catch up. Lovely entry for this week’s theme.What is the second to last shot?

    • That is looking closely at the water in the empty plant against the palm in the last shot. I love it as you can see the palm reflected in the water. I used to feel guilty about posting before everyone else but I now look at it as they are posting late and only the ones that give instructions do I now wait for. I usually add the link when they finally get around to posting. LOL

  4. Actually, I did not get the Pingback, but here I am. Adore the way the close up gave the flowers an ethereal quality. The first actually reminds me of coral floating underneath the sea–a nice mental image. Happy Phoneography Challenge.
