A nice early morning start to have the traditional Saturday coffee catch up with my mate Henty. This morning it was at the Express Lane cafe in B Shed at the Rottnest Island ferry terminal on Victoria Quay, where I took these photos.

Spring is here and a pleasant Fathers Day forecast for tomorrow, so enjoy the weekend in Fremantle, as the rain will return next week.

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.

Nice soft winter morning light in the High Street mall today, shows that Fremantle is beautiful every day of the year.

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! ; >)

WILD STORMS HIT FREMANTLE

Posted in beaches, city of fremantle, rain, storm, Uncategorized by freoview on May 25, 2018

 

 

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.

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.

spring

 

Isn’t it gorgeous! Came across this lovely spring scenery in Shuffrey Street while I was doorknocking in the east end of City Ward.

Met some very lovely people too, but the old legs were calling for a break, so reading a book until I’ll attend Council at 6pm this eve,

WINTER FINALLY ARIVING IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, photography, Uncategorized, winter by freoview on July 1, 2017

 

clouds

 

It looks like winter will be arriving in Fremantle a month late this year, with BOM stating it was the hottest June in history after the coldest summer.

I took this photo of the very dark big clouds over the Maritime Museum at 6.45 am this Saturday morning, on my way to coffee at the Moore&Moore cafe.

It was taken at a ridiculously high 6400 ISO because I never travel with a tripod, so needed to do a hand-held shot in quite strong wind.

You’ll get the message. I am trying to find an excuse for the low quality of the image because I am a lazy shooter. ; >)
