Best of Brisbane in a day

D has an insane long day of school on Tuesdays from 8am to 6pm and so, J brought Abigail and Dyane, who were back from their Gold Coast trip, to check out the best (and most) of Brisbane in one day…

First stop: Sassafras for brunch! (J’s second visit in less than a week!)
We had our own drinks but shared the mains.

Dyane’s hot chocolate and J’s iced coffee (she loved the ice-cream in the coffee πŸ˜‰ ):

POTATO, FETTA & MINT ROSTI’S… mushroom, semi dried tomato and rocket salad, soft poached egg, onion relish, mint riata:

TOAST with peanut butter:

CANADIAN WAFFLES… with crispy maple bacon, grilled banana & maple syrup

And of course, we end our brunch session with a group shot! πŸ˜€

Second stop: University of Queensland‘s Advanced Engineering Building

D was having a lecture and we crashed it πŸ˜›
We chose this lecture to do so because it’s at a Lecture Theatre with a beautiful (but distracting) backdrop.
Being there definitely made J miss school and crave returning to do her Master.
If that’s where she should go, we’re trusting in God to open that door – for God will open doors no man can close, and likewise, He will close doors that no man can open; so by faith, we’re sure He will show us clearly whether J should be studying or working in 2014 – 2015!
And by His grace as well, He will provide the means – if He brings us to it, He will bring us through it! πŸ˜€

Third stop: Mount Coot-tha – J’s been there so many times (4th time?), she didn’t take any photo on this trip. πŸ˜›

Fourth stop: Hakataya @ Sunnybank Plaza for dinner

We picked D up from school then headed for dinner:
