No signs of major storm damage in Fremantle. A few broken branches along Riverside Drive in East Freo and along Point Walter Road but that’s it. At present the sun is even shining in Beaconsfield, so I might not need the heater today after all.

Some THIS IS FREMANTLE banners at South Terrace got loose but not ripped.

I hear people say the new Destination Marketing banners are supportive of Alzheimer sufferers as they now always know they are in Freo, but my theory is that Fremantle Council has, as always, been leading the way and future focused.

In case those ‘pesky Chinese or North Koreans’ jam the satellites and all GPS systems break down people who drive or ride into our gorgeous port city will just have the Eureka moment- AAAAH, we are in Fremantle. 😇

There could be some nice rainbows today. Go and have a look!

WET AND WILD GOOD FRIDAY AHEAD

Posted in city of fremantle, Easter, photography, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on April 19, 2019

 

B&W rain

 

This is one of my all time favourite photos, which I took early last year on the Melville foreshore just east of Point Walter, and it suits today’s bad weather Good Friday mood to a T, so I republish it to start this wet public holiday.

The big storms did not hit Fremantle overnight in the area where I live, but there are a lot of hours in the day still where the forecast is for strong winds, hail and more rain, so stay safe.

BAD FRIDAY CANCELS FREO STREET ARTS

Winter-like conditions forecast for Good Friday are making it into a bad Friday for the Fremantle Street Arts Festival which has been cancelled, but only for Friday!

Fourteen degrees and 100% chance of rain, hail and storms means we can spend Good Friday at home and contemplate, read a good book, drink mulled wine, etc.

But do support those cafes which are open tomorrow please. Chalkys in the West End of High Street, The Attic in Bannister Street, Duck Duck Bruce in Collie Street, TLC in Wray Avenue and the Lumos Cafe in White Gum Valley.

Also open are Benny’s Bar, Sail&Anchor, Little Creatures, Mexican Kitchen, Cicerello’s, Bathers Beach House.

The Festival is of course on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and in a cashless society do stock up at an ATM to get money to give to the performers.

BAD BROWSER, WEATHER AND MOOD

Posted in city of fremantle, internet, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on December 15, 2018

 

B&W rain

 

Hello Freo. I am back!

Finally back on line as my browser suddenly did not work this morning, probably due to my 10-year-old Mac. If anyone got a more recent one they want to sell for not too much please let me know.

Not much to report today, but the weather forecast is not too good for tomorrow so I am posting one of my favourite rain photos of 2018 again.

VERY FOGGY FREO MORNING

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle port, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on November 17, 2018

 

 

Wow! That is one very foggy Fremantle morning hey!

The humidity was 77% at 10am but was 90% at 6am and hence the visibility is very average.

It is going to be a pleasant 27 degrees though, if you can deal with the pesky little bush flies that spoiled my coffee at B Shed at 7am.

WILD INDIAN OCEAN AT FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, south mole, storm, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on August 29, 2018

 

storm

 

I love it when the ocean is wild, so hopped in my car at 2pm when the storm arrived in Fremantle.

The car got sprayed with salt water on the South Mole but the ocean looked delightfully untamed, just the way I like it.

The Weather Bureau says it is the wettest August since 1965,  but spring is just around the corner, so hang in there.

It was real spring weather in beautiful Fremantle today, so here a few photos I shot on the hop. I am not known as Kangaroel for no reason. ; >)

WET, WET, WET, A GOOD DAY TO STAY IN BED

Posted in city of fremantle, city of melville, perth, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on August 9, 2018

 

B&W rain

 

Because it is a bit of a slow news day today, and because it rained a lot over night, and because I am not looking forward to a very wet day volunteering at the Roundhouse, I republish the photo I showed yesterday, but this time in Black&White.

It was taken on the Melville foreshore just up from Point Walter, and if you look carefully you can see the Perth skyline through the rainy mist, on the right hand side.

THE LOVELY BEAUTY OF RAIN

Posted in city of fremantle, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather, winter by freoview on August 8, 2018

 

 

rain 2

 

I am an incurable romantic and a very Sensitive Old Age Guy, so hence me looking for beauty in just about everything.

There is a bit of rain around Freo today and a lot more expected tomorrow, so try to stay dry and warm.
