Pique-nique de fin d'année aux jardins botaniques
Here is a map: Faisons un pique-nique dans les jardins botaniques. Même endroit que les années précédentes au dessou de l'énorme pin le plus proche de la ferme Apex où le jardin fait une courbe autour du port. (Directement au sud du café principal et point du petit lac). Merci d'arriver à partir de 12h00, pique-nique prévu à 13h00 afin que nous puissions tous partager la nourriture. Merci, d'apporter de la nourriture et des boissons à partager. (Home made est encouragée - et bien sûr tout ce qui est français). Apportez également, tapis de pique-nique et ustensiles de cuisine tasses et ouvre-bouteilles. Nous pouvons faire un long banquet avec les tapis de pique-nique supplémentaires et s'asseoir de chaque côté. N'oubliez pas d'apporter de la crême solaire, des lunettes de soleil et un chapeau. Si le temps tourne à la pluie, nous annulerons. Au plaisir de vous voir là-bas. Si vous vous perdez, appelez-moi au[masked]. L'entrée la plus proche des trains est allumée à la gare Martin Place, puis entrez de l'entrée, à l'angle de Macquarie st, près de la Bibliothèque d'État. C'est 15m plus long à pied via Circular Quay. ENGLISH Lets have a picnic at Botanical gardens. Same spot as previous years under the shade of the enormous pine tree with a tiny palm tree next to it, close to the harbour. (Directly south of the main pond at the pointy end). It's near the column sculpture called The Choragic Monument of Lysicrates at the bottom of the main pond near Flower Bed Lawn. Look for a gigantic pine tree with a skinny little palm tree next to it as shown in the picture above. Please arrive from 12.00 and aim to be there so we can all eat at 1.00pm so we can all share the food. Please bring food and drink to share. (Home made is encouraged - and of course anything French!). Also bring, picnic rugs and eating utensils cups and bottle openers. We can make a long banquet table with extra picnic rugs and sit on either side of it. Don't forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat! Also boules or other games if you have them. Should the weather be rainy we will meet at our usual tables at Central Park and have the picnic there. Looking forward to seeing you there. If you get lost, call me on[masked]. Closest entry from trains is alight at Martin Place station then enter from entrance, cnr Macquarie st near State Library. It's 15m longer walk via Circular Quay. Cheers, Michelle
