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.

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.

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

Freo

 

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.
