Oxygen is necessary for good health

From time to time it is necessary to refresh oneself and to take a deep breath.
Oxygen is required to make all the human organs function correctly, especially when one is at the mouth of Australia's longest river, the Murray River.
In Australia it is so important to ensure that one's stomach is not dominating in the photographer's eye and that is what we naturally strive for. Of course, the beer, is only for effect, naturellement !!!

So there you are!!! I see the party had already started down under and we weren't aware of it!
Showing some skin huh! Great, since you're both in your swim costumes you're all ready to jump in and sail away with us when we leave Lynn's party (the party will go on of course!)

Oh wait, you're already there and with Mme.Benaut's name tatooed on your arm!!!

Monica said...

You guys look goooood. Is this an encouragement to get a picture of Lynn and I in a bikini?!?!

M.Benaut said...

YEP, lady you got it in ONE

M.Benaut said...

P.S. Monica,
Australians don't EVER swim in their street clothes !!
Think again, think carefully, slowly, this is Australia.

This is my first visit to your blog and I like your photography.

I'm thinking... and I guess I can visualize it!

Monica said...

AHHHHHHHH!!!! I was going through some of your old posts that I have'nt seen yet and found this photo of theses adorable koalas !!!!! Are they friendly? Do they let us hug them? Do you see them often??? Oh M.Benaut, if I ever go to Adelaide will you take me to see on of those please???
I adore these flufy animals!

Meanwhile, I also saw Mme.Benaut's photo in a non exisiting green bikini.... there's no way I'd show something similar to that, I don't look as nearly as good as she does!
Bravo Mme.Benaut!!!

I see you are ready for Lynn's birthday party and Monica's sailing ship Mme.Benaut. Who is the guytanding next to you? Does M.Benaut know him? Better yet, about him?

You both look good, hope you enjoyed your day at the river.

Mme Benaut said...

Bonjour everyone and Happy Easter to you. I'm sorry that so far I've missed Lynn's party - will pop over toute de suite.
I'm glad you like the photo. We had a great day: picnic and ride in the boats. It was a little tough on my poor back but hey, I survived. M.B of course felt no pain whatsoever as he was well anaesthetised!
Monica - I'm about to pop over to Rio as well to see you "in the swim". This is a phrase which in Australia has another meaning which is - being extremely fortunate.
A toute l'heure mes amis ... bonne journee.

Mme Benaut said...

Dearest Clo. I forgot to mention you - I'm always thankful for your delightful chivalry, as are Lynn and Monica, I'm sure.

Obviously a good time at Goolwa mes enfants. Another deep breath taken may have been disastrous Monsieur. Enjoy the holiday weekend and ensure that the Easter Bunny arrives. Mais? les chats??????

M.Benaut said...

Merci, anon, it wouldn't be the first time. D'accord?

M.Benaut said...

Then we shall get you a pink one !!!
A girl needs to be colourful as well as well-dressed.

lynn said...

Oh this is a great photo! I love it. Mme you look so pretty.

Monica said...

You're right Mme.Benaut, but I didn't see Clo popping in to sail away with us...!

Mme Benaut said...

Ooh - "mes enfants". Anon. you are Maman!! The cats are fine dear. Well fed and happy.
And Clo. that IS M.B standing next to me!! But you knew that didn't you?
