That was the weekend that was… Part 2 – Entertaining Larry

Sunday was also predicted to be a busy day. Not a great amount of sleep, followed by a day around Sheffield entertaining a visitor from Seattle.

I’ve known LarryB online for many years now, through Flickr and Facebook, and also Instagram and Twitter.

When he said he was visiting the UK on a social visit we invited to take him around Sheffield.

He arrived in Sheffield at half past twelve and after a coffee in the Sheffield Tap, we headed up to the DaVinci exhibition at the Millennium Gallery.

Larry loved the steel gallery next door with all the cutlery exhibits.

After the gallery we walked up via the Police Box, Peace Garden and Barkers Pool and up to the cathedral for a quick look in there.

Finally, a team trip down to Kelham Island and a trip to see the River Don Engine running. He loved that!

A walk and tram ride later and we were in the Devonshire Cat for tea. Sadly the last few times I’ve been in the Cat I’ve been disappointed with the food. This time was no exception. Whilst the Sheffield Rarebit was delicious and the onion rings were nice, they really can’t do chips at all! They were soggy.

After that we walked back to the station, collected the car, and moved over to the Royal Standard ready for the Ethryll gig.
