In 2004 and 2006 Danni accompanied me on the Tasmanian adventures and so I was feeling a bit nostalgic and took a trip down memory lane through some old photos where I found this one one of us on board the Spirit of Tasmania.
Bay of Fires Conservation Area in north east Tasmania.
As the ocean is the main feature of this area seafood is in abundance and nearby there are a number of Pacific Oyster farms where, at the moment, it's possible to get live oysters for around $7-8 per dozen (I was actually given 14 for this price!).
[NB have just discovered (10th January) that you can harvest your own oysters FREE on the rocks near the bridge coming into St Helens — the one near the floating cafe]
Delicious, freshly shucked and served au naturel, or with:
a dash of soy sauce,
a piece of pickled ginger, and
a dab of wasabi
