In other parts of the world it was either last Sunday, in others it will be next Sunday...
My wonderful son and daughter in law took me to lunch at their favourite Italian restaurant in their neighbourhood.
After lunch we drove to Fremantle and spent a few hours walking around and visiting some of our favourite spots.
It was a perfect Autumn day, with a top temperature of 24C!

The next stop was a visit to the Fremantle Markets, held from Friday to Sunday, were I bought some interesting gifts to take when I visit Europe in a couple of months.
There you can get anything from fresh fruit and vegetables to clothes, art and other original and crafty things.

Across the Fremantle markets, this 25mt mural of an Australian numbat, painted by ROA, a Belgium artist. He was also the one that painted a giant mural in Perth city centre in the recent Form festival. You can read about that by opening this link.
On the way to the parking lot where we left the car we walked past this wonderful bakery/cafe in Pakenham street, called Bread in Common, where they have the most wonderful artisan bread.
Inside, this brick house has been paired back to bare bricks, and has a very industrial and simple look. Outside, next to wooden seats, there's a couple of wooden boxes with fresh herbs and vegetables.

Back at my son's house we had a cup of tea and slice of cake and took this photo to remember a great day.
I hope you too had a wonderful Mother's Day.
