Fishing Boat Harbour, Fremantle

Some colourful reflections on a rather still night in Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. Best fish and chips around at Kailis Seafood, on the waterfront.

This one legged (or so it would have us believe)  seagull was appealing for some chips,
but the sign said  "Do not feed the birds"

At least this one could read as he didn't swim or dive

Grey Skies

This little window in the sky caught my eye.

It was nice to sit and enjoy a thermos of coffee out at Reynoldson Reserve  and watch the clouds rolling by. This area comes alive with colour from September through to December when the various verticordia flower, but at the present time is just nondescript bush. Sharing sky photos with

My first thought when looking at these clouds was "headless chook", warped imagination I know.

The bush as it is now and how it will transform in spring

The above 2 photos were taken in roughly the same area as those snapped last week.

Rain At Last

It is what we have all been waiting for. After months and months of hot, dry days we have finally had two decent falls of rain. Two weeks ago we had 20 mils overnight and on Wednesday night we had another 16 mils. This morning we went bush walking to Christmas Rock, just so that I could check out the condition of the walk trail. I am now volunteering at the visitor centre and feel that I must check out the local attractions if I am going to advise people to visit them. The walk trail itself is about 3 1/2 klm and is an easy walk. Trees that looked as if they were dying 3 weeks ago now are greening up again and showing much less stress, the magic of rain.

Started off with clear blue sky but this had turned to grey and light rain again  by the time we had finished our walk.

Parts of the walk trail are under water and
looking more like a creek than what the creek does.

This creek runs through the track and frogs could be heard, but not seen  in the grass

A small section of trees were showing some colour

Water had collected on the rock

Sea Urchin Hakea are starting to flower, this was a surprise as they did not flower at all last year

Salmon Gum stands tall and proud

A view over to the Hills and farm paddocks are starting to get a green tinge to them. Blue sky now all but gone.

Old Abandoned Wagon

Found this old abandoned wagon in a paddock on the way to Cadoux. It's working days are long gone.  Linking with  Rubbish Tuesday today as I think this fits the bill, although I don't really see it as rubbish
