It looks like the predicted bad weather is moving in quite fast, as this photo taken at about 9.30am at Fremantle’s Bruce Lee oval shows. Batten down, Freo!

FREO PORT IN A STORM

Fremantle Ports had a bit of bad weather recently, with yesterday’s announcement of alleged fraud by a staff member, but there has also been some storm damage with the roof of this shed on the South Mole being peeled back.

From memory that roof was only been renewed last year, so the storm must have really ripped into it.

GOOD MORNING SUNDAY!

It is Sunday, so the day when true believers confess all the kinds of nonsense they have been up to, so time for me as well to confess.

It is difficult to admit that my sublime perfection has been tarnished because of Covid-19. I have become lazy and don’t often get up at 5am anymore, especially during winter. But today I ventured out and walked in the dark, to be the very first customer at Chalkys at 7am.

While walking home along the Cappuccino Strip I noticed the lovely colour of the sky just after sunrise and took this photo of the Old Synagogue being embraced.

There are plenty of clouds around, and we have had some rain, but so far the wild storm that is forecast by BOM has not eventuated.

The weather forecast for the weekend is wild and wet, and it looked like that for a while this morning when I walked along the Fishing Boat Harbour.

It’s going to be a wet week, so before we get morose about it let’s remind ourselves what a stunning weekend we had in Fremantle. I took this photo of the Bathers Beach House on Sunday afternoon.

Wonderful to be woken up this morning by very loud thunder, lightning and heavy rain. I love the force of nature!

Wandered around Fremantle for a bit after coffee at Chalkys and took some reflection photos, which I publish upside down. The art of rain.

There are still some quite heavy showers around Fremantle on this last day of autumn, so take an umbrella with you when going out for a walk.

GETTING A SOAKING AT BATHERS BEACH

 

storm 1

storm 5

 

Oh my golly goodness did I just get soaking wet at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach! I was taking photos at the Fishing Boat Harbour without realising the boardwalk got flooded, so I was standing in ten centimetres of water. I hope my shoes will dry one day.

Then there was rain and a lot of spray from the massive waves at our city beach.

It is beautiful to watch, so well worth it that I needed to put new clothes on for the second time today.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey. Some will claim though I only report about negativity. ;>))
