WILD STORMS HIT FREMANTLE

It is very wet and wild out there in Fremantle on this Friday, and the bad weather is going to continue for a while.

The strength of the storm is amazing. I almost got seasick sitting in my car at Port Beach as the vehicle shook madly.

There is quite a bit of damage at the dune paths at Port Beach and Fremantle Ports have closed the North Mole drive because of waves crashing over the road.

I love this wild weather at the ocean as there is a bit of nostalgia there when I think about my childhood in the Netherlands, and the very many hours I sat watching the wild North Sea in awe.

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.

Very Freo

The Indian Ocean at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach, friends meeting for a chat while riding their bike, sunshine, and sailing on the ocean. It’s all very Freo hey!

SALT SCULPTURE AT BATHERS BEACH

Simon Gilby is an amazing artist and an amazingly nice bloke for someone so successful. You can see his public art all over Perth and he has exhibited extensively. Simon’s work was put up on a small ‘island’ in Bathers Bay this morning as part of SCULPTURE@BATHERS.

The work is made out of salt and intended to deteriorate when wind, water and sea salt attack it, and that might be much earlier than hoped for with very bad weather forecast for Sunday. Don’t miss it though! A good vantage point is just at the start of the South Mole opposite Challenger TAFE.

S@B starts this weekend and runs till March 29.
