Une expression australienne traditionnelle:2





Jour 2, - Purnong-Landing* et son Bac
À certaines des nombreuses traversées sur le fleuve Murray, les bacs sont encore dans le service actif aujourd'hui. Quelques bacs ne peuvent pas opérer à cause du niveau bas de l'eau. Ici à Purnong-Landing*, il y a encore assez d'eau à croiser et faire traverser les camions et les touristes. Un jour BLEU-VRAI de nouveau.
*Un endroit où on peut débarquer / atterrir; - un palier au côté d'un fleuve.

Day 2, - Purnong-Landing and its Ferry
At some of the many crossings over the Murray, ferries are still in active service today. Some ferries can not operate because of the low water level. Here at Purnong-Landing, there is still enough water to cross. Another True-Blue day !

Gorgeous sights once again, M. Benaut. I'm a girl easily scared though and that drive-on? bit of road gives me the willies. Oh do excuse my choice of word, i've just been over at Dive's.

Nahhh, there's nothing to it, Lynn.

In Oz, one just follows one's nose, so to speak.
We have antidotes for the Willies, but you need to get down here to find it out. (Not like Dive's willies; with a small 'w' !!)

We are a pretty friendly lot and the antidotes are plentiful !!!

Think on it !

Sounds very attractive right now, M. Benaut. The dishwasher's packed up, i've just been elbow deep in gunge and i'm halfway through mopping up the kitchen. I've spilt bleach over my sweater so look like a tie-dyed seventies kid, my hair fell in the goo so i'm off for a shower then cheating with a takeaway meal for tonight. Oh now i've got it over the keyboard.......doh! Later.

Cool ferry. We have one like that at Reedham, a few miles downriver.
My willie has frequently floated across on it. Hee hee.

Mon ami a pass� les voitures Renault sur le bac l'ann�e derni�re en les assayant, j'ai reconnu les m�mes photos de la vieille machine aussi.

I have never in my life ridden on a ferry. This seems so very sad to me. I must fix this soon!

lynn said...

I... fixed the dishwasher. Yes me! Are you proud of me? :)

Très jolies photos, M. Benaut.

Merci, mes amis.
J'essaie toujours de vous montrer la façon australienne de faire des choses. J'espère que vous apprenez un peu du "Terre Large et Brun".

This is heaven. I'd love to cross the river on this ferry. Beautiful photos, Monsieur Benaut.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
