9.07am, Sunday, 23rd May, Just the one departure gate again, Armidale Airport, New England Region, Country NSW, Australia
Still yawning, no coffee shop, so after putting my bags on the scale and getting my tickets with trusty Qantas Link back to Sydney and through to Melbourne, we – me and our man in regional NSW, Richard Keir, you might remember him from the job a couple of weeks ago in Newcastle – zip back into town to grab some coffee before the little prop plane arrives from Sydney, unloads, and within 20 minutes, loads us and heads back.
I’ve got just enough time to say that all went well in Armidale with our second Rare & Fine dinner up here, especially seeing as it was a VERY big weekend events-wise in town. We even had Ken Done – noted Australian artist – on our plane in yesterday, and he had an event with one of the University Colleges, so we were pretty pleased with the solid turnout again.
So I’ll catch all up when I’m down in Melbourne this evening – but it’s all green for go so far!
