We have not long arrived home from a rather extensive day out. An early start saw us gone just after 7am as we had quite a bit to do in Brisbane and it was just over an hour of driving to reach our first destination.
The prime reason for the trip was to take the frame for the mirror from this dressing table to a glass merchant so that we can have a new one cut. They no longer do resilvering as the precision equipment available today means that a replica can be produced more easily and at less cost.
After dropping off a couple of items to a friend and my brother, and picking up our saw that we had lent, we made our way to visit my mother. Or more specifically, to pick her up. We then headed to Shorncliffe, a bayside suburb, where we braved the breezy day and had a picnic lunch of fish and chips from The Shelley Inn. It was lovely that my cousin was also able to join us.
A final stop a little further along the shore to see the historic Shorncliffe Pier which was rebuilt and restored about 5 years ago. Here are a few views.
We rounded off the day with a few shopping chores with my mother.
A little pre-planning ensured that today was both enjoyable and an efficient use of our time and fuel.
