Canal Street, Velvet Restaurant
Near Lowry and the War Museum
Took in the Imperial War Museum North today. It's located in one of those river areas loaded with hypermodern architecture. A pedestrian lift bridge, the Lowry Centre, glass and high-tech...
The day started cold and rainy but weather is extremely variable here; one moment warm and sunny, five minutes of cloud and mist, heavy rain, high wind, then calm again.
Went down to Canal Street to have a lovely sandwich and salad at Velvet, then I popped over to the train station to purchase my ticket to Ulverston.
I've got a temporary 'buddy'. A somewhat drunk fellow who has been in the city for 8 days and who, as I do, takes the free shuttle buses, chatted me up yesterday. Today he boarded the same bus I was on and sat beside me and chatted again.
I'm planning a little jaunt to the local monster mall which is 2k from Eccles. Think I'll see 'Source Code' tomorrow to stay off my feet.
