In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

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.

  5. What is that second and third photo? The third one is kind of beautiful and hideous at the same time.

    • The second and third photos are both hideous and beautiful. The second is a sea snail in its death throes and the third is a blue bottle. Both have been washed up on the beach. Blue Bottles are very painful when you get caught by their trailing tentacles/stingers. When the wind and currents are going a particular direction swimming in the ocean may not be pleasant.

      • 😮 Gah! How do you know it’s dying? All the bubbles, I’m assuming, but did it just need to be back in the water? I had to look up “blue bottle”. I was going to guess a jellyfish. That seems to be what it is or at least in that family. (Looks a bit like an alien.)

      • Yes the bubbles. Once the bubbles come it is too late. Blue bottles are different to jelly fish in that they are not a single multicellular organism. Instead they are made up of colonies of individual animals which are unable to survive alone as they need the workings of the others to survive as a single animal. They are also known as Portuguese man o’ war. It’s an alien you don’t want to come across when swimming.

      • That blue bottle is fascinating. Unbelievable. I’m showing this to my kids.
