Melany Views

Lone Tree

Went out with Ben Messina again this morning to his favourite lookout location.

This lone tree was just begging to be pinged, so who was I to refuse!

It really popped as the early morning rays hit the upper branches.

Knees in the Breeze at Jurien Bay


What a cracker weekend we had for weather last weekend! I just love Autumn weather in Perth!

On Saturday went down to Mandurah and surfed Avalon Point for about 5 hours with my mate Russell and his son Roy and then yesterday went up to Jurien Bay to see how some young crew I knew were getting on with the AFF course and fun jumps.

They had all come down from Singapore to go to Jurien for 3 days and one of the young guys, Martin managed to do his whole course of AFF in 3 days!

So after 3 days of intensive training and doing consecutive successful jumps, young Martin is now a qualified skydiver! It took me 4 weeks to do the same course in 86 and I thought that was fast!

These are some shots of a star crest load we did at last light.

Thanks to Pete and Chrissey for looking after myself and the boys!

For more information about Skydiving at Jurien Bay you can find them here.

New Street Art in Fremantle

Umbrella Painters Naval Store St 2

We have some new street art coming together on the old Naval Store in Fremantle.

I have been watching this coming together for a week or so now and when we drove past today the painters were sitting up high enjoying the view whilst having some lunch….and why wouldn’t you!

I am sure the view down the harbour from there would be very good.

You can see the theme coming together is a sea scene of long Octopus tentacles and I think it will make for a nice feature.

You can see the new art coming together just to the East of the lights at the Southern end of the Old Fremantle Bridge.
