The Under the Bridge Foodtrucks at the Fremantle East Street jetty on Mondays are very popular and a fantastic idea, that is now being emulated in Mosman Park, and from tomorrow on also on Thursdays at the John Tonkin Reserve in East Fremantle.

There were a lot of people young and old having a good time last night while a band was playing invigorating music.

If you haven’t experienced sitting at the Swan River, watching the sun set behind the port while having yummy food, go do it next Monday as summer is almost over!

Second nibble of the moon

 

After the special City of Fremantle planning committee meeting about the Woolstores shopping centre site I had to stay to have a look at the super blue moon of course and drove onto the South Mole.

I took the first nibble of the moon with the Maritime Museum and the second nible of the moon with the old cranes.

My relocation for the final stages was not successful however as it was totally packed full at Monument Hill, so I could not get a spot to park.

NEW FREO DOCK PUB A BIG HIT

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle port, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on December 23, 2017

The new pop-up pub The Dock at B Shed on Victoria Quay opened on Friday afternoon and was an immediate success.

The place was absolutely buzzing when I checked it out at five o’clock, a sign that when one offers something new and does proper social media marketing one can attract a crowd from day one.

It’s a perfect spot to watch the port activities and sunset, so go and have a look at it.

The pop-up is only on for the month of January, but a brand new permanent small bar will open on Victoria Quay early next year east of the E Shed markets.

There is always something to discover and photograph when one walks around Fremantle with one’s eyes wide open.

I took these photos of my Freo this morning. There is so much beauty in the ordinary!

OVATION FOR A WELCOME FREO VISITOR

Posted in city of fremantle, cruiseliner, fremantle port, Uncategorized by freoview on November 30, 2017

 

Ovation of the Seas

 

The Ovation of the Seas cruiseliner was only in Fremantle Port for one day but she made a big impression on the local economy.

It was a delight to see thousands of tourists wandering the streets of Fremantle, visiting cafes, shops, the Roundhouse, Maritime and Shipwreck museums and Fremantle Prison.

The South Mole was packed when the ship left port at 5.30pm and there were quite a few spectators on the North Mole as well.

TSUNAMI OF VISITORS HITS FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, cruiseliner, fremantle port, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on November 29, 2017

A travel warning should have been issued for Fremantle as a tsunami of cruise ship passengers from the Ovation of the Seas create a huge wave of visitors to our port city today.

City of Fremantle Visitor Guides were at hand at the Passenger Terminal and Kings Square and a free Freo City shuttle bus service took passengers from Victoria Quay to the city centre.

Fremantle welcomes you all and we hope you will enjoy your stay in our beautiful and hospitable city!

SUNSET AT SAILING SHIP LEEUWIN

Leeuwin sunset

 

It is important for our soul and wellbeing to always know that there is more beauty in life than negativity, so here another photo I took on Sunday night of the sunset behind the SS Leeuwin and Fremantle Maritime Museum.

We are blessed to live in such a gorgeous city as Fremantle.

As a photographer finding beauty in the ordinary is my quest in life.
