LUCKY TO LIVE IN FREMANTLE

I love early mornings in Fremantle because it always makes me realise how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place.

To head out onto the South Mole and see the always great Indian Ocean and the stunning sunrises is something very special for me.

….and I love every other hour of the day living in good old Freo as well!

Here two photos I took just before 7am this morning.

We are having delightful early autumn days but that won’t last, so take advantage of the great weather today and have sunset dinner at the port at the Under the Bridge Freo Food Trucks at the East Street jetty.

It’s on from 5 till about 8.30pm, so enjoy it!

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED-IN AUTUMN

It looks like the big G. up in the heavens is getting old and confused because summer has finally arrived, now that we’ve moved into autumn. What a stinker it was yesterday- the hottest day since February last year.

It is not going to be much better today because high humidity will offsett the slightly lower temperature.

Good to get outside around sunset and feel the first quite cool seabreeze at 7pm. That’s when I took these photos of Fremantle Port.

VERY BUSY FREMANTLE PORT

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, tourism, travel, Uncategorized by freoview on January 12, 2018

 

 

It is a very busy day at Fremantle Port this Friday with ten vessels at berth.

At Victoria Quay there are three cruise liners, the delayed Regatta that was supposed to sail out last evening, the Astor, and the Silver Shadow, which arrived just after 1 pm.

There is also a RoRo vessel and two supply ships at Victoria Quay.

At North Quay there are three container ships and one scrap metal vessel.

Lots of pleasure boats also passing through the port plus the Rottnest Island ferries.

BEAUTIFUL BOXING DAY

There is something invigorating for me to watch the buzz at the B Shed Rottnest Island ferry terminal in Fremantle port early in the morning.

People are excited and the cafe is pumping out hundreds of cups of good coffee, while commercial ships enter or leave the port.

It was kind off reassuring to see that I am not the only one who has aged in the last eight years, but that my former Sri Lankan lover Indira’s stunningly beautiful face now also has a few wrinkles. She was on her way to Rotto.

(We oldies keep telling everyone it’s the youthful attitude that counts, not the years we have been battling to survive on this planet. ; >)

The cafes and shops are open, the beaches clean and the weather a pleasant 27 degrees, so enjoy Freo today and support our local traders!!

….. and for the couch potatoes and sports fanatics there is the Boxing Day cricket test match and the Sydney to Hobart sailing spectacle on TV. I love those traditions.

CHRISTMAS ON ROTTO

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, rottnest island, Uncategorized by freoview on December 24, 2017

 

 

It was unusually quiet on the waters and at the Fremantle B Shed Rottnest Island ferry terminal this Sunday morning, but that might be the quiet before the storm tomorrow and the fact that most people would have left for Rotto yesterday for a nice long Christmas weekend.

I had a 6.30 am double espresso at the B Shed cafe and took these photos of Victoria Quay.

NEW FREO DOCK PUB A BIG HIT

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle port, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on December 23, 2017

The new pop-up pub The Dock at B Shed on Victoria Quay opened on Friday afternoon and was an immediate success.

The place was absolutely buzzing when I checked it out at five o’clock, a sign that when one offers something new and does proper social media marketing one can attract a crowd from day one.

It’s a perfect spot to watch the port activities and sunset, so go and have a look at it.

The pop-up is only on for the month of January, but a brand new permanent small bar will open on Victoria Quay early next year east of the E Shed markets.
