Bascule bridge) or the 'drawbridge' as I like to call it.. much more romantic..castle's moats etc... was incorporated to allow the yachts that are berthed in the inner harbour to pass through. It has been a highly successful development linking the two sides of the marina into a hugely popular venue for both locals (moi!!) and tourists alike.....!

I thought after yesterdays rather 'icky' post something pretty was called for on this Sunday morning... Every year in September King's Park hosts the Spring Wildflower Festival (festival) and there are huge displays of wildflowers and plants from all over the world. I really should take more note of the names and where they originate, but somehow get caught up in the beauty of it all and forget the details....just a few of the flowers above are.. Everlastings, Kangaroo Paws, Boronia Blue Leschenaultia,Gilliam Bells, Wattle, Banksia and Bottlebrush....the smell as you walk through is blissful, the Boronia and Wattle smell just like.... Spring, funny that.....!!

Scout Emblem).I remember it because it was in late December 1979 and a few weeks later in early January I had my son David, and also because my husband was a Scout Master at the the time and participated in the event with his 'troop'. It was quite an amazing scene with over 10,000 young lads camping, and engaging in 'scout like' activities and getting to meet fellow scouts from many different parts of the world..how amazing to think that one person's idea could take momentum and become such a huge world wide tradition.....!

vintagechic). The young lady in the second picture is the beautiful grand- daughter of mon amie Marie who was running her own very popular vintage stall....We left the marina at noon and the marquee hadn't taken off at that point, it's not that I'm disappointed, but just think of the photo THAT would have been.....only joking.....!!

The first views you get of Fremantle when driving down the beach road from Cottesloe are not the most attractive.. The coastal entrance into the beautiful old harbour city is very industrial, with the massive silver fuel tanks and the many cranes working steadily in the vast container yards. Fremantle has been the busiest port in Western Australia since the late 1800's, cargo ships from all over the world dock and unload their containers, cars from Japan and other places, in fact everything you could imagine arrives here and is prepared for it's final destination somewhere in WA....The big grey building in the center of the picture is the Fremantle Port Authority building and the colourful building in front of the tanks is a surf life saving club, if you pull the image in you'll see the valiant group of surfers heading for the water on this cold day.....!! Looking at it again, it seems to have developed a sort of 'fairground' charm, it's doing a job and you have to appreciate it for that.....!!

A good friend of mine asked me to take pictures of her grand daughter during a parents and grandparents visit to her ballet school, these mornings are organized so that the parents can see their children's progress with their classes.. it was an absolute delight. All the mini ballerinas were adorable in their pink and lilac dance tunics and the grandparents were totally enchanted.....as was I, even though there were some moves that would have made Mikhail B 'wince in his tights' .....!!
Thanks so much for the 'get better' wishes yesterday, I think they're working.....!! p.s. 'The dreaded Lurgy' (The Goon Show) 1954.
