Wood can have several different meanings and the same meaning can have different meanings depending where in the world you come from.  A wood no matter where you are it is my understanding that although thick enough to also be called a thicket the canopy is not so closed in that you cannot see the sky. In Australia we call our woods “the bush”. It is a fairly untidy place and apart from wood there are often other delights to be found such as in two of the photos above.

Quite a different feel to walking through the wood we found in Crawley in the UK which was very different to walking through the wood in Vanuatu.

and very different again to the woods found in Vietnam and Cambodia.

But then we could be talking about a different type of wood altogether. Perhaps timber to build a house or even wood for the fireplace.

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.

  1. Some of these pictures are works of art! This post reminds me of our walk in Muir Woods, a magical forest of redwoods north of San Francisco.

    Firstly, I was going to say I learnt something new here, I never knew that when Australians said the ‘bush’ they meant the woods. I always thought that it was someplace out in the desert for some odd reason! Also, already surprised enough with your amazing photo of the tank in the middle of the wood and then that amazing tree trunk curling around the building, I gasped when I saw your last photo of your cat (Trog I’m assuming?) Wow, I see now just what you meant, it could be Maisy! Same markings on the head and everything! How adorable. Another very enjoyable post, thanks for the share Irene 🙂

  8. Thanks. I loved putting them together and seeing the differences in vegetation, colours and wild life (did you notice the lizard in the top one climbing the tree? I used to do a lot of travelling but not so much now.
