Fathers Days was well celebrated in Fremantle with lots of families in the parks, along the foreshore, on the beaches and in restaurants and cafes.

There were some good old-fashioned picnics going on at the Esplanade while in the Fishing Boat Harbour the yachties showed of their expensive investment.

Posted in family, fathers day, fremantle, growers green markets, western australia by freoview on September 2, 2016

Come on Fremantle kids and mums, take DAD to a special place this Sunday and visit the Growers Green Farmers Market at Lefroy Road.

It is the monthly BIG MARKET with lots of stalls to buy DAD a present and lots of food stalls to buy him yummie breakfast and coffee. And you don’t have to clean up afterward yourselves. ; >)

There is live music, and DAD could have a face painting or cuddle up with sheep at Damian’s Farm. The Growers Green is a lot of fun, so make is a very special day for DAD!

Always remember that Freo is all about your special DAD:

Fun

Respectful

Extraordinary

FREO FOREVER FREE LADY BANANAS T-SHIRT

Posted in art, fremantle by freoview on August 29, 2013

Rain or shine the FREMANTLE FOREVER free concert against the proposed forced local government amalgamation, will be a memorable, big and historic event. It will be known as the day when the Fremantle stood up and told State Government to not take us for granted and let us decide our own future.

This is also the opportunity to get a FREE artwork from one of Freo’s most creative graffiti artists Lady Bananas. Bring a T-Shirt and she’ll print this design on it for you. Now THAT’s a cheap Fathers Day present kids!! ; >)

THE LUCKY OCEANS AND THE BIG OLD BEARS concert is at the FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE, Sunday SEPTEMBER 1 FROM 2-4 PM. BE THERE AND DON’T LET THE TROOPS DOWN!

Anyone spotted in the centre of Fremantle during that time this Sunday will have to attend a five hour dinner sitting between Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY. MAYBE NOT!

Posted in fremantle, photography by freoview on August 28, 2012

I often wonder if people actually think before they do things. Do they think of the consequences or of the distress they might cause? Advertising is often careless, but the one I received today by email from Camera House is thoughtless. It reads “Roel it’s not too late to get your dad a Father’s Day present.”

Well dear Camera House people, it is too late, far too late, as my father died many years ago! It is not a big deal for me, but what about people receiving this promotion whose dad might have died recently. This is stupid advertising Camera House!!

FREMANTLE FATHERS DAY MEMORIES

Posted in fremantle by freoview on September 4, 2011

On Fathers Day and on August 18 (his birthday) I always think of my dad Nico. Born as the son of a mill owner and farmer in Hoogeveen in the north of Holland, he moved south and raised five children in the tiny house in Den Haag we lived in, behind the tobacconist shop he ran with my mum. They worked bloody hard!

My dad gave me maybe the most important message in life, and that was to never look down on anyone and to treat everybody the same and with respect. I believe that is a pretty essential and compassionate lesson to learn! Let’s hope that up there is that huge heavenly pub he will love, he is a bit proud of all his children

FLEEING VIOLENCE PHOTO EXHIBITION

Posted in australia, fremantle, photography, politics, racism, refugees by freoview on September 2, 2010

The weather is stunning, the Dockers are playing a final, and it will be Fathers’ Day, but in between wander down to the Moores Building in Henry Street in the West End, and most beautiful part, of Fremantle on the weekend, and have a look at the photo exhibition by Amnesty International FLEEING VIOLENCE TO FREE THEIR FAMILIES.

This is a good show to open one’s mind about refugees, asylum seekers and boat people and to understand that Australia should show more compassion for people in need of protection.

While at the Moores building enjoy a great breakfast or lunch in the Moore&Moore cafe. There will be live music on Sunday morning.
