AFCC Easter Picnic @ Avoca Beach

Definitely a very French Picnic with the Alliance Francaise de la Cote Centrale

We enjoyed a fantastic AFCC Easter Picnic on Sunday at Avoca Beach.

The weather was terribly hot, but it couldn’t be a better place be than at our picnic. We were comfortably sitting in the shades of tall trees and a beautiful breeze from the water was keeping us nicely cool.

The food was yummy and all of it was very friendly… everybody enjoyed and probably few more will follow us to the next one.

Intouchables est un film français réalisé par Olivier Nakache et Éric Toledano, sorti en France le 2 novembre 2011.

L’histoire est inspirée de la vie de Philippe Pozzo di Borgo (auteur du livre Le Second Souffle), tétraplégique depuis 1993, et de sa relation avec Abdel Yasmin Sellou, son aide à domicile, dont les rôles sont tenus respectivement par les acteurs François Cluzet et Omar Sy. Le générique de fin indique que 5 % des bénéfices réalisés par le film sont reversés à une association pour les personnes paralysées, “Simon de Cyrène”1, fondée par Laurent de Cherisey.
