«Expédition de découverte par le Commandant Baudin sur le "Géographe", 1803.»



C'est l'inscription qui a été rayée par capitaine Nicolas Baudin sur cette roche que nous appelons maintenant, «Frenchman's Rock», ou la «Roche du Français».

En ces photos, aujourd'hui, nous pouvons voir le petit temple qui a été construit au-dessus de la Roche du Français, et également la Baleine Franche Australe qui vient chez les habitants de Penneshaw sur l'île de Kangourou.

This is the inscription that was scratched by Capt. Nicolas Baudin on "Frenchman's Rock", Kangaroo Island during his Expedition of Discovery in 1803.

In the second photo, today, we can see the small "temple" that was built over Frenchman's rock; and the Southern Right Whale who is visiting the inhabitants of Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island.

Sighs with jealousy. If they'd had a whale at the pound i would have adopted one of those to.
Whales are my major ambition, I want to see one before Dive eats them all!
