The boring Good Fridays of the past are over in Fremantle and most cafes are open for business and were busy already just after nine this morning.
I have never seen so many people fishing on the South Mole as today, with (illegal) parking on both sides full.
Supermarkets are closed but the great Peaches in South Freo is open and so are the Fremantle Markets and the Fishing Boat Harbour traders.
The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival is on at the Esplanade from 12-5 pm and there is live music at J Shed from midday and a pancake stall to have some yummy food.
Just go for a wander and explore beautiful old Freo and find more traders open for business.
