BUSY FREO FATHER’S DAY

I almost did not take this photo of the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour Father’s Day crowd, because just before I had fallen over a three-year-old who crossed my path on the deck at Bathers Beach.

My heavy Nikon D 700 camera with long heavy lens crashed to the ground, and so did I. Now I have a broken lens shade that will cost over $ 100 to replace and a very painful left-hand and wrist.

Just happy the little boy did not get hurt!

GROWING FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Good to see the extension to the Char Char Bull restaurant in Fremantle’s Fishing Boat Harbour┬áis nearing completion.

The new Piazza has been ready for over two months but the work at CCB means the public car park is still not open to the public.

It is a little disappointing that the new building did not copy the saw-tooth roof of Cicerello’s next door, as it looks like a cheap add-on unfortunately.

But with some interesting furniture and good interior design they might still pull it off. I hope so!

With the new Han’s opening last week there is only one more spot to be filled; the forlorn looking former Mussel Bar.

FREO HAN’S CAFE OPENING SOON

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on August 10, 2017

 

 

The HAN’S Cafe at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach is nearly ready to go. Tradesmen were putting the signage up this afternoon, and inside it is basically fine as well.

The owner told me she hopes to open sometime next week, but it depends on staff.

HAN’S is between Sweetlips and the Bathers Beach House and a welcome change from all the fish&chips outlets in the Fishing Boat Harbour.

Stay tunes. I’ll let you know.

HEY PAULINE. FISH&CHIPS IS HALAL!

Fish&Chips is not only multicultural but it is also multi-faith, as these delightful students of a Perth Islamic college showed at Kailis in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour today.

They’re just normal kids in school uniform enjoying one of the delights all kids love to eat.

If only Pauline Hanson had realised she was selling halal food when she had her Fish&Chips shop.

NEW ADDITION TO FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, Uncategorized by freoview on July 13, 2017

 

 

The extension of the CHAR CHAR BULL restaurant in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is nearing completion.

The new piazza there has already been finished but is still fenced off because of the CCB construction work. It should not be long now!

TOO MANY SIGNS ARE VISUAL POLLUTION

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, Uncategorized by freoview on July 12, 2017

 

 

We just love our signs in Western Australia. It will just be a matter of time until the government will demand we put a sign at the exit to our homes that warns that we might get run over by a roadtrain, trip over pavement, get sun burnt, or that a tiger might escape from Perth zoo. Don’t leave home. It’s bloody dangerous out there!

So now we know that there is no lifeguard on duty at the Fishing Boat Harbour, and just in case of diving after one’s fish&chips that was blown into the drink by the Fremantle Doctor, there also have been a buoy installed.

WA is so over-regulated that it baffles overseas tourists and the visual pollution is getting worse by the day.

LOVELY LITTLE CREATURES IN FREMANTLE

Posted in fishing boat harbour, food, fremantle, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on June 12, 2017

 

 

 

It is nice to be a tourist in your own town sometimes, so when I wandered past Fremantle’s Little Creatures on Saturday morning I decided to take some photos of the very popular brewery restaurant .

My favourite part of Creatures is the Next Door bar on the first floor that overlooks the Fishing Boat Harbour, but it wasn’t open yet when I took these shots.

ALL GOOD FOR HAN’S CAFE FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, Uncategorized by freoview on June 7, 2017

I got told off by Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour guru Henry Liascos for publishing last week’s blog that the Han’s Cafe in Freo might not go ahead because the management company is in receivership.

Henry told me that Han’s will open in a couple of months and that the owner of the Fishing Boat Harbour one already operates two other Han’s franchises, so it’s all good for Freo!

I am happy to be told off when I can publish positive news for Fremantle. ; >)
