Summer has really started with a bang, and is now officially the hottest start of December since the recording of daily temperatures started.

Friday was a real stinker with the seabreeze never arriving, so people were out and about in Fremantle.

I don’t recall ever having seen so many people watching the sunset at Bathers Beach.

FREO EXPECTING A SPRING STINKER

Get ready for a spring stinker, Freo! The weather forecast is for a very hot Friday with temperatures expected to rise as high as 39C, while on Saturday it will be just a wee bit cooler than that with 35C.

Don’t forget that Fremantle’s inner city beach Bathers Beach is one of our quietest beaches and well worth a visit for those who don’t like big crowds on beaches, especially because of its proximity to the Fishing Boat Harbour, so plenty of places to buy food and cold drinks.

And there is an abundance of parking in the vicinity.

PHOTO FOCUS ON FREO’S LEIGHTON BEACH

I don’t go to Leighton Beach very often so decided to give myself an assignment today and do a photo feature on the development and leisure at the North Fremantle beach.

I discovered the lovely MRKT SPACE cafe, boutique bottle shop and food finery, and the beach chairs at the kiosk are very popular with the young people.

RELAXING AT FREO’S BATHERS BEACH

Posted in bathers beach, beaches, city of fremantle, indian ocean, Uncategorized by freoview on September 29, 2019

 

Long weekend

 

It is the long Queen’s Birthday weekend in WA, so one can not let decorum slip and needs to be appropriately dressed, even when going to Fremantle’s Bathers Beach.

These gentlemen were relaxing there at 9am, or were they curing a hangover? ; >)

Dozens of people turned up this Sunday morning for the Sea Shepherd clean up of Fremantle’s Bathers Beach.

Great to see so many people volunteering their time to get rid of the mess other people make. Well done!

Get ready for a hot one! The forecast is for 28 degrees celsius tomorrow and that would mean the hottest day ever recorded in August in Fremantle. But it won’t last long with rain returning on Thursday for another five or so wet days ahead.

While I was shooting SAB-Sunset at Bathers a team from SAB-Sculpture at Bathers was having a meeting and preparing for the next great SAB show in January.

That was a very wet and stormy night in Fremantle and this morning it was invigorating when I and a few other mad people had a walk at Port Beach.

The sun is coming out now so it should be warming up a bit I hope.

Go and enjoy Fremantle, shop around, visit the cafes and restaurants and support our local traders!

It’s nice to start what promises to be a good Sunday with some beauty. I took these two seascapes from the Fremantle South Mole yesterday around midday. The ocean was mirror flat.

One of the largest container vessels ever to arrive in Fremantle Port entered the harbour just before 5pm on Saturday afternoon. The 300-metre-long and 50-metre-wide MSC ELMA can carry nearly 9,600 containers.

She was escorted into port by three tug boats.
