Very crisp morning today but a gorgeous blue sky with some nice clouds. One really can’t complain much about winter in Fremantle.

BOARDWALK FROM FREO TO SCARBOROUGH?

Posted in beaches, city of fremantle, city planning, indian ocean, Uncategorized by freoview on May 31, 2019

 

The idea by the Tourism Council of WA for a 25km boardwalk from Fremantle all the way to Scarborough is an interesting one, but can it ever be realised?

It would be a hugely expensive project to undertake, have environmental impact, and councils and communities along the path might not like the idea, and who would pay for it?

The proposed new long boardwalk would link the existing boardwalk that links Floreat Beach to City Beach.

I’d love to go for very long leisurely walks along the beautiful Indian Ocean without having to divert into the suburbs to get back to the ocean, but is it viable and has Fremantle Council be consulted about the idea?

I would love to see the Bathers Beach boardwalk extended to the J Shed A Class reserve. That would make a huge difference in the West End.

STILL LIFE AT FREMANTLE’S BATHERS BEACH

There is always something different to photograph in photogenic Fremantle when one walks around and is observant.

I took this photo on the beach in front of the Bathers Beach House where Perth’ first and only beach alfresco location is.

Great views of the Indian Ocean, the arrival and departure of ships from Fremantle Port, and of course those gorgeous sunsets.

DRAGONS WORLD SAILING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, sailing, sport, Uncategorized by freoview on January 4, 2019

 

The 2019 Dragons World Sailing Championships started off the coast of Fremantle this morning and will continue until January 9.

Ten races will be held over the six days with some starting as early as 9.30 a.m, depending on the wind conditions, which were strong this morning.

The race course is similar to the one during the 1987 America’s Cup.

A fleet of 35 dragons will compete, which includes  15 international teams.

The event was a bit too far off the coast this morning for me to take photos, so I hope they’ll come a bit closer to the South Mole soon.

What a beautiful sight this morning at 8.30am to see this seal having a rest on Fremantle’s Bathers Beach.

It makes you realise in what a special part of the world we live. I feel blessed and grateful.

WILD INDIAN OCEAN AT FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, south mole, storm, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on August 29, 2018

 

storm

 

I love it when the ocean is wild, so hopped in my car at 2pm when the storm arrived in Fremantle.

The car got sprayed with salt water on the South Mole but the ocean looked delightfully untamed, just the way I like it.

The Weather Bureau says it is the wettest August since 1965,  but spring is just around the corner, so hang in there.

CHILLING OUT IN FREMANTLE

Posted in beaches, city of fremantle, indian ocean, Uncategorized, weather, winter by freoview on August 4, 2018

 

South Beach 2

 

I was on the South and North Mole, at South Cottesloe and at Fremantle’s South Beach this morning because I love it when the ocean is wild. The wind chill factor made it an invigorating experience. Very strong winds also and it was hard to remain on my feet at times.

In Freo town the streets and many cafes were near empty at 11am, so that is not so good for trade. I hope that the weather will be a bit more accommodating on Sunday.

There were not many brave people and dogs on the dog beach either, as this photo shows.

I am cuddling up with a book and look forward to a real winter meal of slow roasted pork belly with Sauerkraut. Mahlzeit! ; >) Yum!!!!

Have a great weekend Freo!

WOW! STUNNING FREMANTLE SUNSET

What a truly amazing sunset that was this evening over the Indian Ocean at Fremantle.

It was so incredibly beautiful that it took my breath away. Nature is just so more awesome than any manmade stuff.
