Rocky shores: Wordless Wednesday


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.

    Enticing! I’d like to sun on a flat rock or wade in the waves with Noelle.

    • Absolutely. We met a woman who wanted to sunbake on the beach. Those rocks were leash free for dog walkers and she wanted some where to let her dog off. I pointed out to her that she could go here and she said “but its all rocks.” I thought they looked really inviting. Warm up and then I’d be wading in also.

    I like the vastness of your landscape and diverse layers of sheer beauty.
