'Flour' power.....!


Looking through the ornate wrought iron gates on Essex Street in Fremantle, open French doors beckoning at the end of the paved walkway lined with terracotta pots, limestone walls, charming balconies and fountain 'splishing' in the courtyard..get the picture :) was like gazing into a picturesque Tuscany vista. Built back in 1862 as a flour mill Port Mill Bed & Breakfast has an interesting history, these days it offers four charming rooms all with balconies, take a tour (check it out, tres joli!) perfect for visitors to Freo.. Looks like Perth is experiencing an Indian summer with temperatures rising back up to 35C next week, soooo over it! Hope you have a fab weekend, take care.....

  8. Actually, it looks quite like California to me (and the dead opposite to Coventry...ha ha!) Now to your back. Is it your neck or your back that is giving you grief? Take care!

  13. I love it! Could I book a month? I'm sure even a short stay would cure all ills, speaking of which I hope your back is getting better! And I wish I could send you some cold (still too-chilly nights). Have a safe weekend!

  16. It really does look like Tuscany. Do you grow sangiovese in WA?

    You are right about the Olympus OM-D wide angle adapter. Mine came with the 14-42 mm lens. That's the one the wide angle adapter works with.
