I drove onto the South Mole to get some nice fresh sea air before going to the Council meeting in North Fremantle, and the light was amazing at 5pm, as this photo shows.

Wasn’t it great to have thunder and lightning, and a short burst of heavy rain in Fremantle this afternoon?!

The Freo day started with the amazing sea fog weather and ended with a sky full of small clouds. It looks like there will be quite a bit of humidity on Thursday as well, so maybe we’ve got some more interesting skies ahead of us.

SEA MIST BLANKETS FREMANTLE

Amazing to see the rare sea mist rolling along the coast because of the high humidity and yesterday’s heat.

In Fremantle Port it just smelled deliciously like the ocean and the Rottnest Ferry had to slow down a bit and use their fog horn.

We live in a wonderful place. Appreciate it!

Summer has really started with a bang, and is now officially the hottest start of December since the recording of daily temperatures started.

Friday was a real stinker with the seabreeze never arriving, so people were out and about in Fremantle.

I don’t recall ever having seen so many people watching the sunset at Bathers Beach.

FREO EXPECTING A SPRING STINKER

Get ready for a spring stinker, Freo! The weather forecast is for a very hot Friday with temperatures expected to rise as high as 39C, while on Saturday it will be just a wee bit cooler than that with 35C.

Don’t forget that Fremantle’s inner city beach Bathers Beach is one of our quietest beaches and well worth a visit for those who don’t like big crowds on beaches, especially because of its proximity to the Fishing Boat Harbour, so plenty of places to buy food and cold drinks.

And there is an abundance of parking in the vicinity.

We are expecting pretty wild weather in Fremantle today with heavy rain and storms, so baton down and stay dry and safe.

I took this ‘watercolour’ of the Maritime Museum early this morning when a big shower hit the South Mole, so I photographed it through the wet windscreen of my car.

BEAUTIFUL FREMANTLE SPRING SUNDAY

Spring

 

What a stunningly beautiful spring day it is in Fremantle. The sun is out and the sky is blue and I have no doubt that many people are at the beach because it is relatively quiet in our port city.

FREO WAITING FOR SUMMER

 

waiting for summer.

 

The umbrellas at the Fremantle Bathers Beach House are waiting for summer so that they can spread out and protect patrons from harming sun rays, but today they remain rolled up as more rain is coming our way.

HOTTEST AUGUST DAY EVER COMING UP

Get ready for a hot one! The forecast is for 28 degrees celsius tomorrow and that would mean the hottest day ever recorded in August in Fremantle. But it won’t last long with rain returning on Thursday for another five or so wet days ahead.

While I was shooting SAB-Sunset at Bathers a team from SAB-Sculpture at Bathers was having a meeting and preparing for the next great SAB show in January.
