Et un petit peu du français,,,

When people think about Adelaide, they think of freedom, friendship, fair-play and fantastic fun.
We feel flattered when friends find their way, albeit fleetingly to our fresh air, fine foods, forests, flowers and foam.
We're 'Fair-Dinkum'; I hope you will think so, too.

Et un petit peu du français, ne faites jamais mal à personne.

I'm very impressed at all meeting in the plein-air as often as you do. It's just lovely. How did you transport the furniture here?

Anyway i can't stay around to chat, today, as Mi..sorry, mY companion is .... in need of me...........

It was all on the houseboats that we rented for the weekend. It's / they're moored behind moi.

Bonne chance aujourd'hui, avec ton amoureux, ma chère.

The time differences throw me off; I am surprised to see your theme day here, but it's a great reminder for me. The conviviality of friends is the best kind of testimony for your city/country!

M.Benaut said...

I guess that I posted just before midnight, thinking that I might get to bed before the usual 2 AM.
Somehow, it just never seems to happen.
I guess that all you northern hemispherians like to keep me up all night for the fun and games that seem to be what blogging is all about !!
Anyhow; what are you doing in Mazatlan. It's half past 5 in the morning !

Je n'ai jamais mangé de kangourou, pourtant on peut en trouver en france. J'ai goûté de l'autruche et nous mangeons volontiers du chevreuil et de la biche.
Concernant le beef américain je le mange sans ketchup ! Frappé ou pas frappé, il est rudement tendre. Dommage que l'on ne puisse pas trouver du boeuf australien en France. Aux Antilles, nous avons mangé du mouton de Nouvelle-Zélande.
C'est chouette une petite garden partie en Amis !

Maria said...

I see shorts and jackets. So, which was it? Cool or balmy?

Marie said...

You are a very good ambassador, M. Benaut.

Sally said...

the people who create advertisements to entice people to your fair state seem to agree! Every ad I have seen from SA tourism features food, and happy people clinking glasses.

Didn't realise you were doing Theme Day as there was no mention - and also no list of everyone else - so here I am a bit late. Lovely lazy view - perfection by the river. Adelaide is such a gorgeous city - and as I said on Gordon's, with the Barossa just up the road!

Cheltenhamdailyphoto said...

Jilly i too am participating but like M. Benaut did not display the list until later. I'm not on the list either, (the Cheltenham one there is Marley who is also photographing the town) i'm technically challenged lol! Let's hope when Monsieur wakes up, he will add it. One day i shall master it all, i'm sure Monsieur will first.

M.Benaut said...

Actually, Lynn, it's so challenging that I just can't figure out how to do it either !
In fact I had thought of asking you, first.

So I just contribute when it's Theme Day, (sometimes) , and hope for the best.

Perhaps Michael holds one of the golden keys to theme day. He's a real wizard when he gets going.

M.Benaut said...

Chère Claude,
Australie, car vous sauriez, est un pays qui mange le kangourou et l'emu, tous les deux.
L'emu, il a la viande qui goûte un peu comme le poulet. Il goûte très succulent.
Je me demande s'il est semblable de l'autruche ?
Je souhaite bien, que le boeuf -Ozzie pourrait être acheté en France. Nous devrions en porter en août quand nous venons en France !
De cette mode nous aurons un BBQ grand dans la période de l'été !

(je pense que mon Français est très mauvais, ce soir ! ! !) Désolé,

Cheltenhamdailyphoto said...

Yes! It's NOT just me then! It IS hard. Ham very kindly sent me the html but i am not on it myself! I tell you, it's difficult.

Bergson said...

Une belle brochette d'amis !!!

Depuis quelques temps tu nous montre sur ton blog que la vie à Adélaïde est fantastique.
bonne continuation!!

M.Benaut said...

Merci Bergson,
Vous devez vous dépêcher vers le bas ici aussi vite que possible. Nous aimerions tout vous voir, et nous vous montrerez comment on apprécie le climat méditerranéen. Cette photo a été prise en septembre, dans notre printemps.

Ohhhh .... is that my seat there next to the bottle on the ground?
Heck, I'd just like to see some ground for a change!
It looks like everyone had the usual grand time.
Cheers to all.

Hey Dennis - yes, that's your chair buddy, we kept it warm for you and the seat next to it, that's mine.
Maria, it was a cool day on the river. This shot was taken in spring 2005 (September) when we spent a few days on a houseboat.
Hi Ame! Sounds like you're enjoying your new diamonds ...
