This port city, west of Atwell, reminded me of Wolfville in a lot of ways. They have a weekend market there with lot of fresh produce to choose from, little shops to browse through and buskers for entertainment. I am discovering that through the pictures, I can relate the story a little better, so I hope you enjoy today's stroll through Fremantle.
In a little place called Harmony, just an interesting sculpted piece with a couple of coots.
At the market, watching this guy fill a very unique homemade polenta cone with soft serve. The cone was actually a u-shape and he put vanilla in one end and chocolate in the other. They were $5. each and it was mid-morning, so we passed up the opportunity to try one.
These little cupcakes looked so yummy.
An interesting concept - purchase a book not knowing the title for $15. Like Andrew said, it could be a recipe for disappointment.
Strolling through the city centre.
Our lunch venue - we decided not to eat outside with the seagulls - they were very aggressive. A fun place for a feed of fish 'n chips.
This is Princess Miranda and her older sister looking at the huge aquariums set up in the restaurant. Very entertaining for them.
Eden taking a closer look.
A very good reason not to go ocean kayaking. This damage is from a shark bite.
Mama and daughter on the dock.
Andrew found a new woman at Bather's Beach but she wasn't very responsive.
Walking on the sandy beach to the 'roundhouse' in the background. This was a prison (or gaol) built in 1830 and is the oldest building standing in Western Australia.
View from the other side of the roundhouse - High Street.
A few reasons for imprisonment - really?? Some of these seem a bit unreasonable.
Fremantle Hotel - would love to see inside this building.
This is the way a roundabout should be built - New Minas should take some notes. A tree in the middle is much more attractive and you can actually see what the traffic is doing, rather than having a hill there that blocks the view of the flow of traffic.
And this is the cutest little bird ever - he's a willy wagtail and when he walks along the ground, his tail just wags back and forth. Here is a video showing his cuteness.
And this is a guy that is pooped at the end of the day - the girls tired him out!!
Having a fantastic time in the land down under with a sweet family.
