Driving down the Bruce Highway yesterday on our way to pick up the puppy, Muffin, the clouds appeared as though painted on a canvas. Their colour was unnatural and they were plopped randomly. The view of one of the Glass House Mountains always fills me with delight as they must Captain James Cook who named them on 17th May 1770.

He wrote in his journal:

These hills lie but a little way inland, and not far from each other, they are remarkable for the singular form of their elevation, which very much resembles a glasshouse for this reason I called them the Glass Houses…

All I can say is that glass houses in England in 1770 must have been a sight to behold. As was the cage of puppies.

Muffin was sitting alone at the rear.

Soon we were on our way home, stopping off at Beefy’s Pie Shop for a sausage roll on the way.

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.
