Fremantle and Christmas Island

Pacific Ocean-Australia-Fremantle  The old part of town looked very historic. Here you see part of the main street and the beautiful colonial buildings from the early 1900s. 

Got the stamps for the Post office in Perth , but a different red cancellation . 

Indian Ocean-Christmas Island-Settlement  This is showing a view over the main Settlement which is the town were the original settlers started. Phosphate is still a big business here and you can see the same large cranes here that can be seen in Nauru. Maybe there is a connection there with both Nauru and Christmas Island having a Australian detention centre for immigrants. Was here during Chinese New Year and is a  holiday on this Island due to the large Chinese population. 

Luckily the Post office was open Saturday morning while I was here. A busy post office. They hand out both Christmas Island stamps and Australian here. A full selection of Christmas Island stamps are available for purchase. The post office postmarks the mail when you hand it back. Two  nice cancellations. 

Indian Ocean-Christmas Island-Settlement   I was not here during the high season for crabs when they migrate back to the sea. That is the rainy season from November/December.  However there were still plenty of crabs about. Had to be careful when driving as I did not wish to go over them . A great red colour . By the way the crabs are not edible. Loved driving around the island . It  has one of the best beaches in Australia- Dolly beach. No one there so one does not even need a bathing suit... 

Lots of nice Crab stamps here. Christmas Island every year issues a Chinese new  year set of stamps. Now I can understand why with having a holiday for the Chinese near year.
