It wouldn’t be this time of year without water whether it be surfing at the beach

or just sitting by the river. This time of year would not be the same if water was not present.

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.

    We are fully into the Autumnal rains, where freezing needles of water stab you if you poke your nose outside. So this post reminds me that the day will come… When our cheeks will once again be kissed by the sun, and the sea be warmed to tepid temperatures and in it we will play. 😇😉

  3. What fun! And what great pictures! We have water too, in the form of cold dribbles blown into our faces. But hey, you can’t have summer all of the time!
