York

How enchanting this medieval town is..we stayed just outside the walls and a short walk later we travelled back in time..

There was some big to-do going on which we later found out was National Police Services Day - recognizing those fallen in the line of duty with a ceremony at Yorkminister Cathedral..alas we did not get to see the inside...but there was lots to explore anyway..including another delicious veg dinner.



We came across a flea market and there was even a food festival going on..

Plus some buskers named "Buffalo Skinners" who did everything from early Beatles to traditional folk music and they were really good..

Intriguing streets of York
They had been hit a bit hard by all the rain - there were no tour boats going along the river as the river was too high to be able to go under the bridges safely...

Here are a couple of photos of our scrumptious dinner at "El Piano" - we had leftovers - ordering too much food!


Tapas style..I will include a photo of the cathedral from the outside...

The next morning we had to get up bright and early and return the car, go into London and catch the Eurostar to Paris...that's next.
