We seem to get the short straw when it comes to getting great weather in Dunedin but we struck the jackpot this time. It was perfect.

Before we left Geraldine, I rang our old friends from Devonport, Ross and Karen who have recently moved after a long time in Cromwell to Dunedin. We hadn’t seen them since Ross’s birthday party a few years ago so we were looking forward to catching up.
We made a beeline for Dunedin Holiday Park which was doing a off peak discounted deal and was right next to St Kilda beach. It was also not far to Ross and Karen in Dunedin South.
After settling down, Ross and Karen arrived with their son Cam, and we enjoyed a catchup reunion drink on the picnic table outside Rafe. Wonderful to see them all.
They had arranged for us to go to tea at a nice Beachfront Café in St Clair which is basically the other end of a long beach from where we were. After a couple of very nice pizzas, they took us around to show us their house. A nicely renovated villa with all the mod cons.. perfect for them. Their two adult kids and grandchildren live not far away.

The next day, we were heading to Gore and we decided to stay at the Town and Country club.
They have an amazing setup with a brick toilet, shower and laundry setup with separate secure parking with plenty of powered sites around the perimeter of a graveled all weather parking area… all for $20. If you are a Clubs NZ member, they also do meals and have a well setup bar area. Fantastic.
