We received these terrific photos with a letter from Lynn Gorman when we updated our cover photo on Facebook recently. The new cover featured a trio of images taken by Dan Fellow and included a delicious-looking pie from the House of Anvers in Latrobe. The photo collage inspired a lot of comment. But if you’re not completely over chocolate yet, here’s a bit more!

Lynn said the latest post on Facebook about Anvers showing Dan’s photos made her go looking for some of her own images.

She didn’t go to Anvers for breakfast. Shet did go for a late lunch though, after running around getting last minute Tassie favourites (including chocolate) before she went on the Spirit of Tasmania (and knowing she was going to eat dinner on-board).

The solution to Lynne’s problem of which dessert to choose was solved by having salmon roulade first. That was followed by an Anvers chocolate tasting plate and then a shared dessert, accompanied by a great hot chocolate.

Lynn has also passed this tradition on, by taking friends to Anvers for some of the same before they sailed. They joined Lynn for a week during her two month caravan trip late last year. And it was just as good the second time!

What can we say? Thanks Lynn for sharing your experience at the House of Anvers in Latrobe with us. It all looks delicious, and I’m sure more people will be adopting your tradition. Well done!

You can see more photos taken by Lynn Gorman during her travels in Tasmania. We’ve also published images of novelty mailboxes captured around the state.
