York

Apologies for posting these so long after my holiday. I still haven't sorted out my laptop, so sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. I think I have to buy a new battery, but i have to find a supplier.

My camera was playing up, especially in York, so I have very few photos.

I went to York for a couple of days on my own. York is a lovely city to walk around. I enjoyed the old-fashioned streets such as High and Low Petergate and the Shambles. I visited the Minster, the York Museum, the Jorvick Viking Centre, Clifford's Tower and the York Castle Museum. I went on the original York Ghost Hunt.

Coming out of the station, you immediately see the City Walls.

There are several cat statues on the walls of buildings, many of which were placed there in the 1920's. I spotted this one on the way from the station.

I took several photos of this window, but none of them caught the green light and the impression of trees I could see.

This shop is in Low Petergate and sells things for cats, but a lot more stuff for people featuring cats: jewelry, books, mugs, glasses, scarves, aprons, ornaments, calendars, etc. I bought several presents there. Note the white cat statue.

Clifford's Tower is all that remains of York castle.

I didn't have much time in the York Castle Museum before I had to catch my train. It's a social history museum. The highlight is a reproduction of a nighttime Victorian Street. I apologise to avictoriangirl for not taking more than this one photo. This is of a jewelry shop window.

I'm glad you like them. I wish I could send you there just to take beautiful photographs! I think you'd enjoy York.
