Had a great day in Fremantle yesterday with Sam. Left Yanchep on the bus to Clarkson, then train to Perth Train Station where (on another platform) I caught the train to Fremantle arriving at 10.45. Walked around a bit & decided to get the free CAT (orange bus) to the Art Centre. Photos of graffiti on bus stop. Lovely lunch, pretentious exhibition. Back on the CAT to Fremantle & made a beeline for Elizabeths 2nd hand book shops. Walked into the delectable smells of Kakulas Sister & S. bought me green tea, dried tomatoes & a yummy bar of ‘organic dark chocolate infused with spices & a twist of orange’! Then we took the train back to

Protect the Dunes? By putting what looks like a steel mono rail across them? What a joke!! There was supposed to be a boardwalk (oxford dictionary: 1.a wooden walkway across sands, marsh etc 2. a promenade along a beach) not this monstrosity. Seen at the end of Foreshore Vista in Yanchep. Some vista.

Wonderous gift from J & M.
Which reminds me, I found this
"Forage Oakland is a project that works to address how we eat everyday, and how everyone can benefit from viewing their neighborhood as a veritable edible map, considering what is cultivated in any given neighborhood and why. The gleaning of unharvested fruits; the meeting of new neighbors; the joy of the season's first hachiya persimmon (straight from your neighbor's backyard, no less); the gathering and redistribution of fruits that would otherwise be wasted- can be powerful and can work to create a new paradigm around how we presently think about food in our collective consciousness."
So far this year I have had given to me – tomatoes, sweetpeas, lemons, beetroot, parsnips, pumpkin, help putting up blinds & some digging from B & B, packets of seeds (to eat, sunflower etc) & a pink towel from M, lemons from J & G, marmalade from S & O, cake & muffins from W & A and all I have given is lots of parsley, the odd bit of homemade bread & help with computer & family history. And last but not least ‘insulation’ in the roof gratis Kevin (Oz PM) and the wonderful owners of this house.

This mornings swim was not so good as there were too many fishing lines in the water. There is a spot just a bit further away called ‘Fishermans Hollow’ which is ideal. With the shark attacks in
Today was 'Clean-up-Australia Day' if you look closely you can see one of our local residents with a bag. With her husband they ‘clean-up’ everyday. Lots of hooks, lines and sinkers. I picked up cans, plastic bottles and many cigarette stubs.
