A drive well worth it.

Today we are going to visit some caravan showrooms. I suppose it’s a bit like visiting display homes when you live in a house. So we drove back to Ulverstone to look at Nova vans first. Very nice. After living in our van now for nearly 5 months there are a couple of things we like and dislike. Just like houses you pick them to pieces.

Then we drove to Somerset just west of Burnie to look at Ascots. Not a lot here. We then stop off at McDonalds for a coffee. We were deciding whether to eat here or somewhere else. It wasn’t a hard decision,

  1. It’s school holidays here, loads of kids.
  2. They are renovating so a lot of workmen and noise.

Yep you guessed it we decided to go elsewhere. Now remember I mentioned about a takeaway place at Port Sorell where we had beer battered Dim Sims. I had a craving for them again.

OK so it was 48 km back to Devonport and then another 19 to Port Sorell. But they were worth it.

Great food, great service. You have to try the Beer Battered Dim Sims

This takeaway is called Aqua and is owned by Paul, Kristie & Matthew. It is on the corner of Wilmont & Rice St Port Sorell. The owners have done everything right. Amazing customer service, immaculately clean ( and you know how fussy I am) even the grocery items they sell are dust free and neat.

And then the food. Now they stock the usual products but don’t just stop there, they improve on them. Fresh local fish not frozen. Decent serving of chips made even more appetising by a sprinkle of parsley. A nice selection of cakes and slices with good coffee. Presentation and quality are what this young couple are great at. But the beer battered Dim Sims are something you should definitely try. Though Paul said we should wait for him to do his steamed Dim Sims coming soon.

Now take your selection down to the beach and you have a winning combination.

A beautiful place. White sand and crystal water.

Another good reason to come back to Tasmania.
