I was invited by Judy Dykstra-Brown to take up the gauntlet and participate in a 7 day nature posting challenge. As part of the challenge I am to nominate a person on each of the seven days I post a photograph. They are under no obligation to join in but wonderful if they do.

Today I invite ksbeth from I didn’t have my glasses on  to join the nature photo challenge if he would like to.

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.

  1. If you look too fast, you’d think he was part of the landscape, a rock or a piece of driftwood or a large spray of seaweed.

    When we drove down the fantastic California Big Sur highway several months ago, we stopped at Elephant Seal Beach. I looked at what I thought was a giant boulder and then realized I was looking at an elephant seal. The thing was massive, the size of a car, and planted on the sand as solidly as an abandoned refrigerator. A few hundred yards away, a couple of them sumo wrestled by thumping their chests against each other and barking battle cries as loud as any trumpet. Hundred of others of both sexes and all ages and sizes, lay like sausages, sound asleep in the sun on the beach. The waves of the Pacific crashed onto the beach but nothing roused them from their nap. Amazing sounds and sight.

    Great photo of the wildlife, Irene.
