On Thursday I left work early and went for a ride down to Fremantle and back to take a photo of a most colourful arch. Not a rainbow but all the colours of the spectrum on an arch of shipping containers close to the port of Fremantle.
Last weekend I rode east to see all the blossoms of the fruit trees. Spring is here.
I live in the hills just east of the city of Perth, Western Australia and I've loved cycling all my life, From riding to primary school when I was 8 years old to cycle touring as a grumpy old man. Cycling is freedom on two wheels and I love getting on my bike at any opportunity.

Ah, a Roy G. Biv arch! Very spectrum-ful!
I googled Roy G. Biv expecting a famous artist and got an acronym. Learn something everyday.
I guess arches don’t have to be round, like the one at the Historical Village.
Hope you post your rose arch sometime when it is in bloom!
Will do, for sure.
Love those ship containers as an arch ;’-). And I think your flat arch is still an arch.
A Non-archetypal arch, that would have made a great title
Someone has some creativity! The shipping containers (who wudda thunk it) and the bridge is really something.
I had to look up Roy G Biv — sheesh! My ignorance is disgusting!!! 🙂 I was thinking he was an artist or architect or some such . . . . .
Same here, we’re never too old to learn something new.
The shipping creators are a stroke of genius alright, but the Matagorup bridge is really a marvel. It looks like dueling sea serpents.
Matagorup bridge I think has something to do with serpents or snakes in Aboriginal mythology. It was going to have a smooth covering but they had to save some money.
I’ve seen that cargo container arch on one of your previous posts, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still marvel at it. WOW!
Hard not too repeat things I suppose, My idea of a great retirement would be moving to a different city every few months and exploring all its nooks and crannies on a bicycle (a bit like the Andersons), Lovely Wife is a home body who never wants to move.
