My farmer had a meeting in Dunedin this afternoon which gave me an opportunity to have a couple of hours in the city.
My mother’s family lived there so we went down periodically when I was young to visit relatives which also provided the opportunity to go to Moana Pool.
Like most who studied at Otago, I hold fond memories of Dunedin as a student city.
A few years later my children were born there and although two of them also died there the standard of care we received takes the edge off that sadness.
Later still I returned to the city to study again which gave me a different but still positive perspective on Dunedin student life.
When I’ve gone down more recently it’s been for a particular purpose so I enjoyed the opportunity for a little retail therapy and a wander this afternoon.
Today I’m grateful for memories of Dunedin. being able to visit the city and also that I can come home to the country.
