I could not stop myself from going out again and take more photos of this morning’s fog in Fremantle.

I drove along the Swan river to Blackwall Reach and Point Walter to take these images.

Will we finally see some rain in Fremantle today and tomorrow after a rainless April?

There are some promising clouds this morning as the photos I took at the South Mole at 6.45am show.

A VERY WET FREMANTLE SUMMER

Posted in fremantle, rain, summer, weather by freoview on February 11, 2017

 

wet-one

 

This has been the strangest summer in Fremantle I have experienced. Wet, cold and only a couple of days near 40 degrees so far.

More heavy rain last night woke me up and there is more to come. The Manning Park Market this morning has been cancelled and it does not look too good for outdoor concerts and markets over the weekend, so make sure to check out if they are going ahead before you leave home.

The most disappointing thing for me is that most of all that beautiful rain in a city environment is wasted and runs down into the ocean because of the lack of rainwater catchment. I so wished the government would make it compulsory to install rainwater tanks at every new building because it would help the depletion of our dams.

I took this photo at 5 pm in High Street near the Roundhouse yesterday. Rain on the car windscreen created the mood.

WHAT A START OF THE YEAR JANUARY WAS!

It is the last day of the first month of the new year and what a month it has been. It was the wettest January since 2010 and we had the hottest Australia Day since 1979.

We also had the most controversial Australia Day ever in Fremantle and the most inspiring Nyoongar smoking ceremony and One Day in Freo concert.

And we are witnessing one of the most distressing demolitions of pristine nature at the Beeliar Wetlands.

So here some golden oldies of rain to remind us all that we live in a unique place here in Freo!

COLD MORNING AT FREO RAINBOW

If you thought it was cold this morning for a summer’s day when you woke up you are not wrong. I should have put on a jacket when I went out at 6 am to take photos of the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture.

According to BOM the Perth/Fremantle region had last year the coolest 12 months in a decade and the coldest winter in over 20 years, so stay warm and hug a loved one, or a stranger if you are brave enough. :>)

Alternatively get a nice coffee or tea in one of the many great Freo cafes! I just did at the Moore&Moore cafe where I was served by the lovely Persephone and Hannah.

SPRING RAIN IN FREMANTLE

Fremantle had some good soaking showers the gardens will love, so I took some rain reflection photos.

I started with the bonnet of a red car because it is almost Christmas, and because Christmas is about good food and drinks I also took a photos of a very wet table at the National Hotel that reflected the building opposite well.

PAINTERLY RAIN PHOTOS OF VICTORIA QUAY

I had to get up early to let a family function into the Roundhouse at 6.45 this morning, and as I am never late I was far too early and already at Victoria Quay at 6 am, just when a heavy shower came through.

These impressionist and painterly photos were created by the rain water on the windscreen of my car.

AWFUL WET AND COLD FREO SEPTEMBER

It’s raining and cold and people being miserable about it in good old Freo, including friends visiting from Lismore.

Took this photo in Henry Street just after catching up with the NSW folk at the Moore&Moore cafe.

I am ready for nice warm and dry weather!

The rain and cold returned to Fremantle today after a gorgeous warm day yesterday, so I am not very happy. I am longing for summer, heat and sunshine!

I took this arty photo from upstairs Cicerello’s this morning at the launch of the new Freo Segway tours.

GOOD MORNING FREO!

It was a pretty wet and cold morning in Fremantle still this Sunday but spring is only days away, so I hope my terrible cold will disappear when warmer weather arrives.

Took this photo of High Street just after 7 am.
