Nice work if you can get it


With summer coming, a job with the water Police looks good to me.
This little cruiser lives at the North Haven Marina. What a great summer job.

Fabulous. Looks like Menton!

Indeed, do they need an English woman on board? Actually i'm not that impressed by my own policeman right now. It's finally over and out.

Sorry I've been absent. Just can't keep concentrated on one blog. Looked back to where I've missed and I'm sure there's a job for me in your neck of the woods (or water, or trees, or railroad tracks...)

I'm so sure it's a great job ...Are you sure it's a safe job ??

Jilly,
Oui, and it's so interesting to see the similarities. Naturellement, Menton is 100's of years older but we both have that Mediterranean climate and are both on the sea. But rest assured, Adelaide has neither crocagators nor alligiles !

Lynn,
You would be surprised to know that SAPOL is recruiting in the UK. I have met a few English coppers here and they seem to be pretty damn comfortable about living here. I'll try to shoot some for you. Start a line-up so to speak.

Michael,
There's so much talk about railways. tram services, light rail in this city at the moment. The stupid government needs someone from your organization to define the problem and put forward a range of solutions. Perhaps Bombardier are thinking of doing just that. I don't know.
This is a huge country and moving the population and goods is going to become a major problem in the near future.
Have you been to China, yet, and if not, perhaps we can drag you down to Oz. You may never want to leave. (You, too, Lynn. !!!!! )

Laurent,
It would be "as safe as houses". This is an expression we use in English.
Because we live by the sea, many people have boats. There is nothing nicer than to spend a day or 3 sailing around in the gulf. The waters are very protected and safe. One can also catch many types of fish.
I think that the water Police would have a job more safe than the land Police; je crois.
You should come to Adelaide one day with the girls, - et le chien d'Axelle aussi !!

Monsieur le Président,
That's actually a job that I would love to do.
I have been searching for your email adress to accept your kind offer regarding the aeroplane photos, but I have not discovered it yet.

Policemen have a tough life and in my home town brisbane a wonderful young cop was shot dead last week.

But water police may have it better - great environment to work in.

M.Benaut said...

That's terrible, Jules. He probably had a wife and children. It's too sad for words.

lynn said...

I'm very sorry to hear of the young cop. Truly sad, having probably saved many lives himself.

From this view, it does look like an interesting job, but I wonder?

Michael said...

Well, I go to China way too often actually. Just never enough time before or after the trips to drop down. One day though...

As for the railways, we pulled out of Australia (kind of) but I see we just one a contract for a new power plant near Sydney. Things could change soon...

Oui, ça doit être super quand on n'est pas face à des trafiquants :-))

Here too I think these policemen have a nice life especially in the summertime.
