This Vauxhall six in burgundy, dating from around 1933, looks as good as the day it was bought.

The burgundy bricks at the beginning of this footway under the railway line left my imagination going rampant as to what the colour could cover.

A burgundy roof lends grandeur to this house where kangaroos graze on the front lawn.

The burgundy lighting adds to the horror of the tyrannosaurus Rex

where as the burgundy markings on these prehistoric frogs may be a warning to other beasties to leave them alone.

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. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.
