I got nostalgic over Christmas and decided to draw the Shorncliffe Pier. The pier has been closed for several years now because some of the support timbers have rotted away. Our local council decided that having the general public walk on the pier in the condition it was in, was just too much of a risk. The pier is one of the longest piers in Australia and stretches out into Bramble Bay by over a third of a kilometre. The barricades were put up in mid 2012 and it will be fully repaired by 2016. Yep, there are quite a few people feeling nostalgic for the pier.
