FREMANTLE PORT GETS SHADES

Port shade

 

Fremantle Ports installed two huge shade umbrellas east of the E Shed markets where the old crane used to stand.

Unfortunately the crane was neglected for so long that they had to demolish it a few years ago, and so another part of our history disappeared.

Not sure at all what the purpose of these umbrellas in that specific location is, so we’ll wait and see.

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.

GREAT TRUCK FOOD AND SUNSETS

Posted in city of fremantle, food, Uncategorized by freoview on February 19, 2018

 

 

The Under The Bridge Food Trucks are at the Fremantle East Street jetty from 5.30pm today, so make sure to go and enjoy this very popular community event.

It is great to sit at the Swan river, watch the dolphins(if you are lucky) and stunning sunsets behind the huge port cranes.

The Food trucks are under the Fremantle Bridge at the East Street jetty today from 5 pm.

It’s a perfect day to sit at the Swan river, watch the sun set over the port and eat some delicious food.

FOOD TRUCKS UNDER FREO BRIDGE

Under the Bridge Food. 16 Oct

 

Let’s hope the weather will be more accommodating for the first of the summer season UNDER THE BRIDGE FOODTRUCKS at the Fremantle East Street Jetty today.

They had to cancel last week because of the storm, so check it out from 5pm today.

It’s a nice location to watch the sun set behind the port and five food trucks will offer a variety of food.

summer

 

I like it hot, so can’t wait for summer, and the season of markets, festivals and events to start in Fremantle.

Took this photo on my way to the Council meeting late yesterday afternoon at the Cappuccino Strip near the very cosy Benny’s bar and cafe.

A VERY WET FREMANTLE SUMMER

Posted in fremantle, rain, summer, weather by freoview on February 11, 2017

 

wet-one

 

This has been the strangest summer in Fremantle I have experienced. Wet, cold and only a couple of days near 40 degrees so far.

More heavy rain last night woke me up and there is more to come. The Manning Park Market this morning has been cancelled and it does not look too good for outdoor concerts and markets over the weekend, so make sure to check out if they are going ahead before you leave home.

The most disappointing thing for me is that most of all that beautiful rain in a city environment is wasted and runs down into the ocean because of the lack of rainwater catchment. I so wished the government would make it compulsory to install rainwater tanks at every new building because it would help the depletion of our dams.

I took this photo at 5 pm in High Street near the Roundhouse yesterday. Rain on the car windscreen created the mood.

COLD MORNING AT FREO RAINBOW

If you thought it was cold this morning for a summer’s day when you woke up you are not wrong. I should have put on a jacket when I went out at 6 am to take photos of the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture.

According to BOM the Perth/Fremantle region had last year the coolest 12 months in a decade and the coldest winter in over 20 years, so stay warm and hug a loved one, or a stranger if you are brave enough. :>)

Alternatively get a nice coffee or tea in one of the many great Freo cafes! I just did at the Moore&Moore cafe where I was served by the lovely Persephone and Hannah.
