HEAVY RAIN IN FREMANTLE

rain

 

This large puddle made access to the City of Fremantle at Fremantle Oval a bit of an adventure. Pedestrians had to wait for cars to pass before attempting to walk along the edge of the water log.

There has been a lot of rain and there are huge puddles on the Esplanade as well, and smaller ones in my home as the drains could not cope. ; >(

HEAVY RAIN IN FREMANTLE

There has been a lot of rain in Fremantle since yesterday early evening, with some very heavy showers.

The foot and bicycle path near the Roundhouse always gets flooded, and that also effects the  busy railway crossing to the historic tourist destination, so something the City of Fremantle should improve, as it is not great to walk through deep puddles whenever there are showers.

PS: My car was parked at the Elizabeth’s bookshop warehouse when I took the top photo.

There is still a bit of rain around Fremantle, and don’t the gardens and parks love it!

I took this photo of the marina at Be. apartments late yesterday afternoon on my way to the Fremantle Network event.

Enjoy the day and appreciate that we live in a gorgeous city!

When I saw the rainbow over Fremantle this morning I just had to get a photo of it with the Maritime Museum. While there I also could not resist to take yet another reflection photo in one of the big puddles.

WETTING MY WINTER APPETITE

winter 4

 

I tend to hibernate quite a bit, especially during the winter months, so I forced myself away from the couch, a book and the heater and went for a stroll through Fremantle.

I took the still life photos of the wet tables at the National Hotel and Lapa.

Now the pea&ham soup is slowly simmering. The best thing about winter for me are the winter meals! ; >)

It was pretty cold early this morning when I took these photos at around 6.30 am on the South Mole.

I first went out of my warm car and took a couple of shots, but the rain came pelting down and created arty images through the side window of the lights in Fremantle Port.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey! It should be rewarded with some nice hot mulled wine this eve. ;>)

FREMANTLE UPSIDE DOWN

Posted in architecture, art, city of fremantle, heritage, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on May 28, 2018

 

 

The FREMANTLE HERITAGE FESTIVAL is on all week, so I combined the autumn weather with heritage buildings and took these upside down/down under reflections in puddles of some historic buildings today.

IT’S A CUDDLE UP FREO WEEKEND

Posted in city of fremantle, rain, seasons, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on May 26, 2018

 

winter

 

 

It’s a Fremantle weekend perfect for soup, lamb shanks and stews, and of course mulled wine or port, or both, and a wee dram of whiskey as a night cap.

Heater on, a good book, a footy game, and in a perfect world someone to cuddle up with, but life ain’t perfect for all of us hey.

WILD, WET AND NOISY FREO MORNING

Posted in city of fremantle, photography, rain, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on April 22, 2018

 

winter 1

 

Fremantle people stayed at home, maybe even in bed, this wild, wet and wonderful Sunday morning as thunder, lightning and heavy rain visited our old city.

I was the only customer at the normally very busy Chalkys cafe in the West End at 7.30am and was one of only three customers at IGA in South Fremantle at 8.30am.

The photo above is a golden oldie I took last year of the reflection of a tree in a puddle in Phillimore Street with a leaf floating on the water. It symbolises autumn for me.
