9.41pm, Thursday 18th June, Sir Leslie Thiess Drive, Townsville, North Queensland, Australia
Evening folks, on a very balmy Townsville evening, with just enough of a breeze to blow the moisture out of the air and cool things off. It’s a different world up here in the tropics, but folks are certainly switched on in this town when it comes to wine and food.After the short hop down from Cairns yesterday morning, we had a very big day, so I’m trying to catch up before continuing to leapfrog south tomorrow to Mackay.
So job number one yesterday was a lunch with the good folks at The North Queensland Club, 2015 being their 150th anniversary year. The club has a top little library, and whilst waiting for people to arrive, I went for a bit of a fossick through their historical stuff. Here’s what Townsville looked like when the Club first started….
And look what I found on their library shelf….I would have been happy to hide out in there all day!
Actually, it’s getting late….I’ll finish this off tomorrow morning at the Townsville airport – all my best work gets done when I’m on the fly!
