Enter from Annie Street for the new location due to construction work!
I love this time of the year with crisp mornings, cool evenings and balmy days, so have fun in Freo!
There is more rain on the way this Sunday so if you want to connect with the community while staying dry and under cover, head to the FLEA MARKET at the Fibonacci Centre from 11.30 today.
The cosy Blinco Street Cafe will offer hot drinks and food to keep body and soul warm and the community ambience of it all will also warm the heart.
Before that though do all your fresh fruit and vegie shopping at the Growers Green. Open from 8 am till midday.

A bit of self-indulgence. I love those clouds so much that I want to repost this photo that I published in B&W yesterday.
