Thanksgiving in Tasmania

A cool and wet Thanksgiving in Tasmania, Australia. This year our traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey and pumpkin pie was replaced with fish and chips at the Manning Reef Cafe in Sandy Bay, just outside Hobart. I don't remember a better fish and chips than this. Being in a place where no one pays any attention to Thanksgiving seems almost surreal, but I'm enjoying the break from the intensity associated with this holiday in the USA. For dinner, we had an excellent take-out meal at the Cripps DT & JL Bakehouse in the small village of Bellerive. The food was quite good and the prices were remarkably affordable for Australia.
