I checked out two iconic Dunedin places that the Speed-date-a-poet young poets came up with for our poems: St Clair’s Beach and the Octagon. It felt like I had stepped into their poems with the tourists snapping shots and the gulls swooping. Late afternoon and I was out at the beach watching the delicious, wild waves pound in. This is a beautiful city. A very good place to relax and feel at home in.
