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.

    Those mangroves are amazing. As a child I never appreciated their smell or the slushiness underfoot. As an adult I appreciate their value to our ecosystems and marine life. If only I known then of their vital role. Just as well we live and learn. Gorgeous important photos.

    I thought 1770 was a great place but don’t remember the Mangroves. Excellent shot.

  7. Those trees look like they just got up and are walking into the water. About as human as a tree can get. I’ve never seen anything quite like these before. Your other readers say they’re mangroves – I’ll have to look them up on the Internet. What a great photo you took, Irene.
