There are still some quite heavy showers around Fremantle on this last day of autumn, so take an umbrella with you when going out for a walk.

Fallen leaves always create a sense of nostalgia in me. My mind goes back to the autumns and winters I spent in the Netherlands and Germany, and the thick carpets of fallen leaves in the forests, and that rustling sound the dry ones make when one walks through them.

I am a bit of an old romantic, so this morning on my way to Chalkys cafe at the Roundhouse I took these two photos in High Street.

Looking for beauty in everything makes life very special.

What a great Fremantle autumn day it is today! Time to get out for a walk and sit somewhere in the sun reading one of the Dutch books my sister Marja sent me. Life is good when one lives in Freo. ; > )

CHANGE OF SEASONS

Posted in autumn, fremantle, seasons, weather by freoview on April 10, 2015

The change of seasons has come over Fremantle quite sudden and is possibly the reason I am feeling a bit lethargic and am yearning for hibernation with some good books, a few bottles of red, a wee drop of port and a big pot of Dutch pea&ham soup.

It was pretty quiet at the Round House yesterday and High Street mostly looked deserted in the constant drizzle that improved to showers now and then. Four lonely yachts were practising against a big grey sky and hard to see through the mist of rain, while looking at an arriving container ship through a wet windscreen always creates its own artwork.

I hope the weather will clear for tomorrow evening’s free concert by the FREMANTLE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA at the Freo Arts Centre. It starts at 7 pm, so come along, bring a rug and blanket and maybe thermal underwear.
