There are still some quite heavy showers around Fremantle on this last day of autumn, so take an umbrella with you when going out for a walk.

Yesterday’s storm did a bit of damage in Fremantle’s Booyeembara Park, with one tree uprooted and several others losing big branches.

It is a lovely park to have a quite walk in though and watch some of the wildlife.

storm 1

 

Get ready for more of this on Friday as a big storm is expected to hit us from mid afternoon with heavy rain, very strong winds and unusually high tides.

If you are going away for the WA Day long weekend it will be best to leave in the morning.

Fallen leaves always create a sense of nostalgia in me. My mind goes back to the autumns and winters I spent in the Netherlands and Germany, and the thick carpets of fallen leaves in the forests, and that rustling sound the dry ones make when one walks through them.

I am a bit of an old romantic, so this morning on my way to Chalkys cafe at the Roundhouse I took these two photos in High Street.

Looking for beauty in everything makes life very special.

There is more of this kind of weather to come this week, so try to stay out of the rain. We are still supposed to stay at home as much as possible anyway because of Covid-19, so if you don’t have to go to work buy a good book.

Stay safe and well, Freo!

FREMANTLE BUFFETED BY STORM

Posted in city of fremantle, storm, Uncategorized, weather by freoview on May 6, 2020

 

 

That is one hell of a storm this morning, with some of the strongest wind I have encountered in Fremantle. I literally could not keep on my feet at the Bathers Beach boardwalk.

If the answer is really blowing in the wind, we should be able to find it today.

I took a few photos on my way to Chalkys cafe, with the recycle bins at my apartment block being blown over, a branch of a tree in Norfolk Street and fences being flattened in Slip Street in Fremantle Port.

And it’s pretty nippy as well and I could have done with a jacket and long pants, but for real men like me that is just invigorating. ;>)) Brrrrrr!

A STUNNING FREO SUNDAY

Posted in beaches, city of fremantle, community, covid-19, health, south beach, Uncategorized by freoview on April 26, 2020

 

It is a stunning ANZAC weekend Sunday, so there are a lot of people around Fremantle going for rides on their bicycles, walking and driving cars.

I wandered over to South Beach and noticed a lot of pleasure crafts on the Indian Ocean as well, so people are taking advantage of the pleasant weather, while most are adhering to the social distancing rules.

WA Premier Mark McGowan announced this morning that from Monday, indoor and outdoor non work gatherings will be relaxed to 10 people and that the number of people allowed to be at weddings has increased to 10, the same as funerals

At a table in front of the Fremantle J Shed at Fleet Street the raindrops on this coronavirus sign made for an interesting photo.

I drove onto the South Mole to get some nice fresh sea air before going to the Council meeting in North Fremantle, and the light was amazing at 5pm, as this photo shows.
