That was a very wet and stormy night in Fremantle and this morning it was invigorating when I and a few other mad people had a walk at Port Beach.

The sun is coming out now so it should be warming up a bit I hope.

Go and enjoy Fremantle, shop around, visit the cafes and restaurants and support our local traders!

HEAVY RAIN CAUSES FREMANTLE FLOODING

That was a lot of rain for about an hour this morning till lunch time and the cormer at Phillimore Street was flooded pretty bad.

The walk way at the back of J Shed looked more like Lake Monger and that is not very inviting for people who explore Arthur’s Head.

FREO SATURDAY SERENADE

What a delightful Saturday in Fremantle, and more brilliant weather to come the next days. It even attracted West Coast Eagles player Andrew Gaff to wander down historic High Street to get over the disappointment of yesterday’s one point loss to Collingwood.

I took the photo of this energetic band in the High Street mall in front of a mural artwork.

That’s enough rain for me for a while! I want sunshine and a bit of warmth in Fremantle and not the wet cold weather we have been having for a bit too long for my taste.

I spent the day up at Arthur’s Head and there were a few nice rainbows but none so spectacular that I wanted to photograph them, so here a shot of the Cappuccino Strip on my way to the West End and the huge puddle reflection at the Whalers Tunnel.

VERY RAINY FREMANTLE DAY

What a dreadful day! This is what it looked like at 9am on the South Mole when the front moved in and it has been raining in Fremantle ever since.

RAINBOW AT ARTHUR’S HEAD

It was a wet, wild and very windy day and there is more to come, but the beautiful rainbow I photographed at Fremantle’s Arthur’s Head made up for the cold day that required a few layers of clothing.

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

SOME COLOUR TO START A WET WEEK

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fremantle arts centre, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on June 10, 2019

 

lightbox

 

We have had very decent rain the last three days and there are many more showers to come all week so the gardens can’t stop smiling, and I hope the same applies to our farmers.

So to start the wet week a bit of colour for you. It is the lightbox in the children’s creative section at the Fremantle Arts Centre.

INVIGORATING FREO BEACH WEATHER

beach

 

I grew up in weather like we are having this weekend. It was always quite refreshing to walk along the beach of Scheveningen in Holland when the storm was cold and the rain was pelting my face. I believe optimists call it invigorating. It is indeed!

There were quite a few people walking along the beach and about five kite surfers in the water, and all that was missing was a kiosk with mulled wine and hot chocolate

I took this shot along Leighton and Port beaches. Port Beach has been closed south of the restaurant because of the danger of dune erosion and collapse.

That was a lovely soaking with rain all night in my part of Fremantle. It was so nice to listen to it that I did not get to sleep till 2am.

The sun is out now but the clouds are being pushed fast by the heavy wind and more rain is expected for the weekend and into next week.

I took these three photos about an hour ago.
