york - take 2

... at the end of the day we returned to the York Museum Gardens to look for squirrels

... and found quite a few

We stayed at a fantastic apartment (5 min walk from the historical center)

which had this most fantastic view from the living room

We still had a little time before dinner so we decided to take a walk along the walls, starting at Bootham Bar right next to the apartment

the light was magical, and made everything look even more beautiful

york - take 1

(Celina, tinhas razão, nós adorámos York :)

Our last couple of days of this trip we decided to spend in York. We've been meaning to go there for years now, so on our way back from Wales to London we planned a little detour. And so very much worth it, because we loved every bit of this wonderful historical city.

We spent the morning shopping (Cath Kidston for me, baby books for S.) ...

... had cream tea at Little Betty's

... had a little stroll in the lovely York Museum Gardens

... got strawberries from Newgate Market

... and enjoyed a bit of sunshine near York Minster
