Best place in NZ: Auckland
Haley McCrystal loves living in Auckland so much that she's written a poem about it.
Auckland is the place for me
A city of sails right by the sea
With mountains dotting our fair land
And beaches glittering with black sand.
Shows and festivals by the score
Entertainment's not what we lack for
To fill in all many summer days
And play we do, all kinds of ways,
On boats and boards or our backyard
The choosing is what makes it hard
When Auckland has so much to do
With family, friends or just for two.
With cafes, restaurants second to none
And bush tracks for my daily run
The Sky Tower and Devonport
And parks for every kind of sport
There's no place that I'd rather live
So many thanks I'd like to give
To go elsewhere would be a pity
I'm blessed to live in Auckland City.
