Skywatch Friday Noosaville on Thursday

Today, Friday, is as blue as yesterday but although I have taken a photograph in order that my recording of Friday skies remains unbroken I have posted from Thursday as I was down on the river at lunchtime and the pelicans gave interest to an otherwise cloudless sky.

At sunset, I wished I was down be the river. It must have been a spectacle but I could only capture glimpses through the houses and wires of a pink burgeoning cloud.

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.

  2. That fantastic cloud – it’s no wonder ancient people believed in monsters in the heavens.

    The lines and curves of the pelican are so intriguing. What a beautiful bird to watch over lunch. Wow — quite the build-up of clouds at sunset. Are those thunder-boomers?
