Chillaxing :) in Freo...



No gardening, not a paintbrush in sight.. tres bon! We drove down to Fremantle Harbour early yesterday morning with nothing particular in mind. Breakfast and people watching on South Terrace aka the 'cappuccino strip' .. looks like people on the other side were watching moi aussi :)  


Stopped in at the Fremantle Markets to buy flowers and listen to Mani on the piani :) you can listen to him here also, he knows how to tickle that keyboard!


A stroll over to the harbour where C.Y. O'Connor stands looking out over what is described as 'a personal triumph'.. the harbour..


Not much going on there, usually way more tooing and froing! Home after lunch to have a wee 'nanna nap' parfait! Looking forward to more of the same today :) Hope your weekend is just as relaxing, take care and stay safe...

  3. Such nice summery shots, Grace. It is so nice to sit outside to eat. People are still doing it here even though it isn't as warm as you have it - if the sun is out and no wind it's lovely to sup outside.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful day in a wonderful and colorful place! Love that 2nd shot...the street reminds me a little bit of something you might see in an old western movie...

  11. That's my sort of day Grace ... sitting back with a good coffee and people watching. I clicked over and listened to "Mani on his Piani" great music for street venues.

  22. Sounds (and looks) like a perfect day. My favorite kind of relaxing, roaming around camera in hand.

  23. Hi Grace. Just responding to your questions re the "totem" poles. They're fairly recent and are located at the entrance to a restaurant. I think they serve simply to draw attention to the eatery. But they are colorful.

  24. Interesting blend of the old and the new!

  25. You are living the good life, Grace. Thanks for documenting it for us.

  26. I love Freo, it's my second home since my daughter emigrated. I felt a little pang of home sickness when I saw South Terrace and the markets xx
