This has been a social weekend: in the relaxed, community, ‘village’-ish way that we are finding that Fremantle has in spades.  A weekend of nothing-much – out for breakfast we meet (successively) the people at Tim and Shani’s fish-n-chip housewarming the night before – the sequence goes on.  One connection leads to another. Linking the encounters, smiles, waves and chin-wagging.  At every turn there are bicycles – of all shapes and sizes.

The ‘feel’ to Fremantle seems (to me) to have been nurtured by a recent stance by the council that graffiti can be art.  This link explains more, but a few photos on my behalf might illustrate a little too :-)

Boisterously eye-catching - and most definitely not destructively defacing.

This ‘guerilla-art’ is done without planning permission or process.  And thus happens, rather than not.

Ootong & Lincoln is a measly 1.6km from home (downhill) – and amongst many other haunts, forms part of our expanding circle of community life.

with plenty of bustle around the food and coffee (not to mention, the certain something added by 2 large multi-colour zebras)
