Fresh air ... this way!




Whenever we are in Fremantle I zip around the corner on South Terrace aka the 'cappuccino strip' to see if I can catch the elusive Horatio T Birdbath working on his incroyable mural titled coincidentally 'Horatio's Wall'. You might remember I told you all about him here. Couldn't believe my eyes, there he was actually painting, of course I was too shy to speak to him, I really have to work on that :) I also noticed for the first time the line separating the smoking and none smoking area. Since 2008 smoking has been banned not only from inside but also outside alfresco dining areas in Fremantle, what made me smile was that this line is within a stone's throw from the last cafe on the strip :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  3. It is so beautiful! I'm always shy to talk to people too but have found that most people doing murals are happy to say hello and are often quite shy too!

  11. It's a magnificent mural Grace.
    I like the line from fresh air to smoking zone.

  12. I look forward to the day when France outlaws smoking in outdoor seating of restaurants. Why are smokers given the best seats? I never thought it would be banned indoors and it was, so I have hope.

  14. What a beautiful wall! Though I'm not sure that line will keep the smoke away.

  15. I like that wall very much. I recognize your "problem". My husband speaks to everyone he meets, which I sometimes find a bit uncomfortable. But I must admit you get some nice conversations by doing so and now I try too and it works indeed. :)

  17. Awesome work for sure, Grace!
    I´m with you. I always tell myself later: I should´ve braved up!
    The worst was when we were stuck in Eneabba due to flooding in 1999 and I didn´t dare to ask the road-train-driver if he would show me his truck. Gahhhhh! Maybe he´d let me drive a meter or two even.
    Did I learn a lesson? No....
