Hat Trick

Freo Street Arts 3

We caught Grant Goldie’s act, “The Man Show”, at Fremantle Street Arts Festival today. The high energy juggling/balancing/comedy show kept everyone roaring with laughter and admiration. A few kids found out why you should never “volunteer” to join in a street show  – but performed so well that they may have discovered their vocation in life.

Freo Street Arts 1

Fremantle is the place to be this weekend. Perth’s port city is always a good place to go for a coffee or a meal. But this weekend it is more alive than ever with the Fremantle Street Arts Festival which runs from 30 March to 2 April.

A Touch of Glass

Holy Trinity Rottnest

On Rottnest Island yesterday, we stopped to look at Holy Trinity Church. It’s an interesting building that could be almost anywhere, if it wasn’t for those give-away eucalyptus leaves. It has stained glass windows with familiar Bible scenes, including this one which is very fitting for today, since it is Good Friday.

Cape Vlamingh

Yesterday we caught a ferry from Fremantle to Rottnest Island. At the far west end of the island is Cape Vlamingh (above), named after the Dutch naval captain who discovered the island in the 17th century. The next land to the west is Madagascar, over 6400km away.
