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

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.

FREMANTLE PORT STUNNING SUNRISE

sunrise port

 

Summer is back! We are expecting 31 degrees today in Fremantle, so get out the shorts, mini skirts and bathers!

The sunrise over the Maritime Museum was stunning and the warm colours a prediction of what the day will be like.

It was very busy at B Shed with many people sailing out to Rottnest Island.

I believe it is going to be the hottest May in 58 years or so, according to the weather news on TV. Enjoy it!

SO VERY LUCKY TO LIVE IN FREMANTLE

The ocean has always been the big leveller in my life. It is the place where everything comes in perspective and where one’s own relevance diminishes in the realisation of the enormity of the universe.

When the body gets invigorated by the cold storm that sprays water in one’s face and when one sees the mighty dramatic sky above the roaring waves, one realises that we are all so different, but so very much the same.

The oceans makes me more aware of our vulnerability and that we all want to be liked, loved and respected and that basically we want to wake up tomorrow and live in peaceful harmony with our fellow human beings and with nature.

Late yesterday afternoon when I took these photos on the South Mole I though how incredibly lucky I am to be living in beautiful Fremantle, a city with a strong, caring and compassionate community and that I live in this amazingly beautiful island country of Australia.

SUNSET AT FREO’S BATHERS BEACH

How can one not love a city like Fremantle that has sunsets like this one today.

I shot it at Bathers Beach and there were close to a hundred people watching it.

FREMANTLE GREAT RAIN OR SHINE

cosy mm courtyard

 

There is still a bit of rain around, but it is pretty warm, so no excuse to not enjoy one of Fremantle’s lovely cafes.

This is the cosy courtyard of the Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street, that also has a children’s playground, and it is next to the Paper Bird children’s book shop, so the perfect destination during school holiday.

 

…and rain drops in my little backyard.

The weather was not anywhere as severe last night as BOM had predicted, but I took these two moody photos around 6 pm from the top of an East Fremantle hill ovelooking Fremantle port.

BAD WEATHER CANCELS FREO CHRISTMAS CAROLS

Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on December 15, 2017

 

The City of Fremantle has cancelled the Sunday Christmas Carols on South Beach due to the weather forecast of a big storm front coming through on Sunday afternoon and into Monday.

It is unlikely it can be rescheduled so unfortunately we’ll miss out this year.
