SIX MORE SLEEPS BACK TO NEAR NORMAL

 

 

It is not only us humans hanging out for pubs and restaurants to open again, the poor seagulls in the Fishing Boat Harbour are also keen for a feed of fish&chips.

GETTING A SOAKING AT BATHERS BEACH

storm 5

 

Oh my golly goodness did I just get soaking wet at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach! I was taking photos at the Fishing Boat Harbour without realising the boardwalk got flooded, so I was standing in ten centimetres of water. I hope my shoes will dry one day.

Then there was rain and a lot of spray from the massive waves at our city beach.

It is beautiful to watch, so well worth it that I needed to put new clothes on for the second time today.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey. Some will claim though I only report about negativity. ;>))

NEVER A BORING MOMENT IN FREMANTLE

There is always something happening in Fremantle, as my late afternoon walk proved yet again.

I wandered down to Bathers Beach in the hope of catching a spectacular sun set, but that was not to be, however there was this amazing short moment of a spout of rainbow when looking south over the Fishing Boat Harbour, then three people, one dressed as a monkey, were filming a video, a classy gentleman sat all by himself at the Bathers Beach House with a good bottle of red and a long-stem wineglass, and all of a sudden a very noisy helicopter did a very low loop over Bathers Beach. All that withing 15 minutes.

Love you, Freo!

IT WAS A PRETTY GOOD FRIDAY

I went for my late afternoon exercise walk, through the city, Victoria Quay and down to Bathers Beach and the Fishing Boat Harbour, where I bought a disappointing fish&chips, which was over cooked and the fish too dry, from one of the two outlets that were open for take away there.

I bumped into a few people, so nice to have at least a short chat after a day of almost silence, but for the banging noises from my upstairs neighbour, and they were not even about having a good time. ;>))

There were a few people out riding bikes, walking, jogging, walking dogs, and I took the above photos of two ladies relaxing during a bike ride.

I must admit that I do find the socialising restrictions quite relaxing as I do not feel the need to go out and about all the time, so it works for me, as long as I’ve got enough books to read.

WHY NO PROMINENT WAY FINDING TO BATHERS BEACH?

wayfinding

 

Why haven’t we got anything like this in Fremantle to point to the underutilised inner city Bathers Beach?

I suggested stenciling way finding signs to the beach two years ago and just noticed this one in Cottesloe.

LAST DAYS FOR SCULPTURE AT BATHERS

Posted in art, bathers beach, city of fremantle, sculpture, sculpture@bathers, Uncategorized by freoview on February 28, 2020

 

 

The SCULPTURE AT BATHERS show at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach is almost over, so if you have not been to visit it yet make sure to do so on this long weekend, after which it finishes.

More than 90 sculptures by Western Australian artists are displaced on our city beach, the boardwalk and the lawn, and also inside Kidogo Arthouse.

They were testing the LUMINOUS project of Sculpture at Bathers last night that lights up the dune path, so I went and took some photos.

It will be running from tonight on for the next two weeks, so go and have a wander.
