BAD BROWSER, WEATHER AND MOOD

B&W rain

 

Hello Freo. I am back!

Finally back on line as my browser suddenly did not work this morning, probably due to my 10-year-old Mac. If anyone got a more recent one they want to sell for not too much please let me know.

Not much to report today, but the weather forecast is not too good for tomorrow so I am posting one of my favourite rain photos of 2018 again.

VERY FOGGY FREO MORNING

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle port, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on November 17, 2018

 

 

Wow! That is one very foggy Fremantle morning hey!

The humidity was 77% at 10am but was 90% at 6am and hence the visibility is very average.

It is going to be a pleasant 27 degrees though, if you can deal with the pesky little bush flies that spoiled my coffee at B Shed at 7am.

DARK CLOUDS OVER FREMANTLE

rain

 

There were some very black clouds over Fremantle when I drove onto the South Mole at 7am this morning, so there is still a bit of rain to come, by the look of it.

On my daily pilgrimage to Chalkys for my Espresso fix the light of the rising sun just hit the Roundhouse, with the very dark clouds as backdrop, which made for a dramatic photo.

WILD INDIAN OCEAN AT FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, indian ocean, south mole, storm, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on August 29, 2018

 

storm

 

I love it when the ocean is wild, so hopped in my car at 2pm when the storm arrived in Fremantle.

The car got sprayed with salt water on the South Mole but the ocean looked delightfully untamed, just the way I like it.

The Weather Bureau says it is the wettest August since 1965,  but spring is just around the corner, so hang in there.

GORGEOUS FREMANTLE SPRING DAY

It was real spring weather in beautiful Fremantle today, so here a few photos I shot on the hop. I am not known as Kangaroel for no reason. ; >)

WET, WET, WET, A GOOD DAY TO STAY IN BED

B&W rain

 

Because it is a bit of a slow news day today, and because it rained a lot over night, and because I am not looking forward to a very wet day volunteering at the Roundhouse, I republish the photo I showed yesterday, but this time in Black&White.

It was taken on the Melville foreshore just up from Point Walter, and if you look carefully you can see the Perth skyline through the rainy mist, on the right hand side.

CHILLING OUT IN FREMANTLE

Posted in beaches, city of fremantle, indian ocean, Uncategorized, weather, winter by freoview on August 4, 2018

 

South Beach 2

 

I was on the South and North Mole, at South Cottesloe and at Fremantle’s South Beach this morning because I love it when the ocean is wild. The wind chill factor made it an invigorating experience. Very strong winds also and it was hard to remain on my feet at times.

In Freo town the streets and many cafes were near empty at 11am, so that is not so good for trade. I hope that the weather will be a bit more accommodating on Sunday.

There were not many brave people and dogs on the dog beach either, as this photo shows.

I am cuddling up with a book and look forward to a real winter meal of slow roasted pork belly with Sauerkraut. Mahlzeit! ; >) Yum!!!!

Have a great weekend Freo!

Fremantle had some glorious sunny days but now the clouds are moving in and we are expecting some rain tonight and tomorrow, and possibly on the weekend as well.

FREMANTLE AFTER THE STORM

after the storm

 

Driving onto the Fremantle  South Mole late yesterday afternoon I was fascinated with the very flat Indian Ocean that had the same colour as the sky above it, so I took this after the storm photo of the tranquility.

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.
