Olivades 2008 en beaucoup de gallons de vin





Après que les olives aient été recueillies, il est temps de célébrer.
L'agneau a été fait cuire sur la broche et tout le monde est mort de faim, en particulier les enfants et les chiens.
Un petit peu plus tard, certains parmi nous, ont la nécessité de regarder l'intérieur des paupières !

After the olives have been picked, it is time to celebrate.
The lamb has been cooked on the spit and everybody is hungry, especially the children and the dogs. A little later, some of us need to look at the inside of the eyelids !

Looks like you all had the BEST time. There are two olive farms in Gorbio. Will show you when you are here - never heard of such festivities afterwards tho - perhaps they need to learn!

Hi, Jilly,

This is an annual event for us and we generally camp overnight.
After the festivities, the kangaroos came around to see what all the fuss had been about. There were about half a dozen of them and they hopped away a little as they were approached.
C'était moi, dans la première photo. Très humide et heureux !!

Et parfois, une gueule de bois ; et pas à cause des olives!!

Le vin australien est très bon, mais il tourne bien des têtes,il y a le même genre de barbecue sur la côe d'azur au moment des vendanges.

J'aurais bien aimé en être. J'aime bien guindailler et j'aime bien le vin. Mais aujourd'hui vous devez sûrement vous payer une sacrée gueule de bois ! :-))

That top photo of you is fabulous! I reckon that's a profile pic. Really good! Glad you had a good time.

Molto grazie, Lynn; do you think it's good enough?
