Nonsuch’s Grand Day Out

We’ve had a visitor for a couple of nights – Nonsuch, from Norfolk, visiting with his humans. We welcomed him with our Welcome banner, and the customary celebratory snack.

We were up bright and early on Monday for a day out. I’d promised to show Nonsuch all around Manchester. We travelled by tram. Nonsuch had never been on a tram before.

Our first place of interest was the Art Gallery. We enjoyed most of the art very much, but Nonsuch said some of it was a bit saucy for a country vaark. We did find a very ornate vaark-house though.

After lunch at Real Junk Food (which the human forgot to photograph!) we dropped into the John Rylands Library to admire the Reading Room. Nonsuch whispered that it was Very Ornate.

Our final stop was MOSI, the Museum Of Science and Industry, where we were very interested by all the industrial machinery.

Fortunately, by this time, the humans were getting tired, so they decided it was time for tea and cake. Oh, the cake!

On the way home, we decided that as it was so warm, we’d pop into The Northern Type for a refreshing drink. I had a fruit soda, and Nonsuch enjoyed a nice IPA.

Well, we had a lovely time. This morning we had a big goodbye wiffle-hug with Nonsuch, and sent him on his way with a snack to keep him going. We hope we’ll see him again soon.
