Exploring Op Shops with Driving Miss Daisy Burnside


It was an exciting day when our Burnside SA region Daisy, Pete, took his retired RAN Officer client, David and his coordinator out to visit three op shops, looking for a replacement for the plate he had broken from his set. They had a lovely drive to the op shops with David telling stories about his time in the Royal Australian Navy on HMAS Melbourne, Australia’s third and largest aircraft carrier.

As David has mobility difficulties the plan was that Pete, plate in hand, would walk in and around each antique shop looking for an identical plate to  replace the broken one. After visiting the three op shops, with David preferring to remain in the car, Pete realised David’s real reason for the trip – lunch at the Largs Pier Hotel where they had Guinness Pie on the menu!

As Pete said, “We had a wonderful day assisting a veteran. I was totally engrossed in David’s stories and felt privileged listening to his shared memories.”
