For a few days we traveled north of London to York
and the Bronte BandB near the old city.
We loved staying here.
It was so comfy and by far the best bathroom on our travels.
I was really looking forward to meeting a blogging friend, Linda P.
of A Rich Tapestry. You can visit her here
What a lovely time we had over lunch and wandering in York.
This was a first for Linda to meet an online friend.
I hope I didn't scare her too much (Ha!)
Online friends can be just the very best and Linda is on that list for sure.
My "live-in gardener" and I just fell in love with York.
We were greeted by this gladiator as we entered the walled city.
I just love the many ice cream vendors we encountered all
along our travels in Europe. This is just a sampling of what many looked like.
No trip to York would be complete without walking along the top of the wall.
Peeks of York Minister was seen from all angles,
but I loved the peeks into backyards and manicured gardens too.
A stroll down The Shambles was definitely on our list and we
found ourselves there everyday.
This was where the meat vendors at one time had their shops.
The buildings were constructed to lean toward the street to keep
the sun off the meat hanging there.
We will return here next week with more posts.
The inside of the York Minister was breathe taking.
They were busy preparing for an upcoming stage production,
so my photos were taken looking up.
No visit to York would be complete without the York Castle Museum visit.
Outside the museum there was part of an old castle on the hill and a carousel.
The carousel wasn't running right then or I would have hopped on.
Fascinating street entertainment.
The gate we often walked through to enter and leave the old city.
We got to experience train trips quite often along the way.
Here we are waiting to return to London.
It was a wonderful time in York and there will be more to come
next week of this lovely city.
Today is National Scone Day in England
and I celebrated with a scone and tea this morning.
Happy Scone Day
and blessings on your weekend.
