A few things that caught my eye on our visit to the port city of Fremantle on Tuesday.. walking along the South Mole the view above of the WA Maritime Museum.. with HMAS Ovens resting on the historic WW11 submarine slipway at the side. If I wasn't so claustrophobic I would love to take one of the guided tours through the submarine.. can't imagine what it must have been like for long periods. Had a bit of a play with settings on my Olympus for the shot above.Meanwhile when we arrived to park and pay.. this is the first time I've seen meters where you have to key in your car registration number.. so much info just to park, do you have these in your city?
Below the bathing belles of the Bathers Beach House check out the link to see the gorgeous Art Deco style building..
Moi cosying up to an Italian fisherman in the boat harbour below, my favourite fishing vessels in the background..
School excursion Aussie style.. the Maritime Museum to the left, artists studios centre and the Round House, built in 1830 and the oldest building still standing in WA to the right..
Many school bands were busking around Freo on Tuesday, here a group warming up beside The Monk on South Terrace..
I have to stop sometime, so I'll end with a view down South Terrace aka the cappuccino strip.. if you pull in the poster on the lampost you'll see that not much has changed. Fremantle definitely values it's heritage buildings so much more than Perth city, which is a shame. As you can see it was cloudy and grey, they've been predicting rain for days now.. still waiting! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe... p.s. how much fun was it to see everyone's 'shy self-portrait' yesterday :)
