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!

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.

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.

WINTER MORNING AT FREO’S PORT BEACH

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!

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.

THIS IS FREMANTLE-in winter! I took this photo at Bathers Bay this morning while chatting to fellow shooter Peter Zuvela of J Shed.

More fine weather ahead this weekend and next week so perfect for school holidays and for supporting our local Freo traders.

FREO WET WEATHER CONTINUES

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.

RAINBOW AT ARTHUR’S HEAD

rainbow

 

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.
