FBH sign

 

The Fremantle FISHING BOAT HARBOUR traders have put up a nice very big new sign at the entrance at Mews Road.

Good signage in the right locations is of great assistance to visitors to our little port city, so well done FBH!

Congratulations to Fremantle’s Clancy’s Fish Pub which is celebrating its 30th birthday!

During my good old drinking days I spent many hours a week at Clancy’s drinking Guinness and wine and eating lots of fish&chips, whitebait and fried mice.

I danced to exhaustion on the great music of the Zydecats almost every Sunday night and attended many festivals Clancy’s organised in Princess May Park.

The Clancy’s crew are the best people and the family atmosphere in the pub makes sure there are very few occasions of the odd bad drunk.

Melbourne Cup at Clancy’s was a really day out where I caught up with friends at 11am to stagger home early evening.

Clancy’s is a truly Freo icon that looks after children as well as it looks after grown ups.

Happy birthday Fisher brothers and all the staff and thanks for all the good times!

On my daily stroll around Fremantle I took this reflection photo of a window at Kailis in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.

BUSY FREO FATHER’S DAY

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, Uncategorized by freoview on September 3, 2017

 

FD 1

 

I almost did not take this photo of the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour Father’s Day crowd, because just before I had fallen over a three-year-old who crossed my path on the deck at Bathers Beach.

My heavy Nikon D 700 camera with long heavy lens crashed to the ground, and so did I. Now I have a broken lens shade that will cost over $ 100 to replace and a very painful left-hand and wrist.

Just happy the little boy did not get hurt!

What a stunningly beautiful Sunday in Fremantle today!

No need to take my word for it though, but the thousands of people came to Freo for a stroll, meal or coffee, show that I am right.

It is such a delight to see more people in town, and to know that this is going to assist our traders.

It is good to know that in the near future all the development that is happening in the inner city will see more people living and working in the CBD. A couple of hotels are also in the pipeline, so the hundreds of thousands of visitors will be able to stay in our port city overnight.

It’s all good and I am very optimistic about Freo’s future!

HEY PAULINE. FISH&CHIPS IS HALAL!

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, islam, Uncategorized by freoview on August 1, 2017

 

 

Fish&Chips is not only multicultural but it is also multi-faith, as these delightful students of a Perth Islamic college showed at Kailis in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour today.

They’re just normal kids in school uniform enjoying one of the delights all kids love to eat.

If only Pauline Hanson had realised she was selling halal food when she had her Fish&Chips shop.

TOO MANY SIGNS ARE VISUAL POLLUTION

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, Uncategorized by freoview on July 12, 2017

 

 

We just love our signs in Western Australia. It will just be a matter of time until the government will demand we put a sign at the exit to our homes that warns that we might get run over by a roadtrain, trip over pavement, get sun burnt, or that a tiger might escape from Perth zoo. Don’t leave home. It’s bloody dangerous out there!

So now we know that there is no lifeguard on duty at the Fishing Boat Harbour, and just in case of diving after one’s fish&chips that was blown into the drink by the Fremantle Doctor, there also have been a buoy installed.

WA is so over-regulated that it baffles overseas tourists and the visual pollution is getting worse by the day.

BEAUTIFUL BATHERS BEACH LOVED

Posted in bathers beach, fremantle, indian ocean by freoview on April 3, 2017

 

 

Fremantle’s Bathers Beach is more and more becoming a leisure destination for locals and tourists and it showed on Sunday afternoon when many were basking in the gorgeous warm golden glow of the setting sun.

Work is also well under way at the new piazza in the Fishing Boat Harbour that no doubt will become another attraction.

I am very confident that Freo is turning it all around and that we’ll have an invigorated and vibrant city in the very near future!
