Beautiful York!

I already posted several photos that were taken in London during our recent trip to England, but I haven’t posted the ones from the gorgeous city of York.  This was our first time visiting York and we are so glad that we decided to venture outside of London (our favorite city) and do some exploring.  The Shambles, an adorable street in the old city, and the surrounding area had such wonderful little shops and restaurants to wander around in. The walled city is beautiful in so many ways and one of the highlights was the York Minster, which was truly breathtaking.  

They also have a market within the old city that sells crafts and some of the most wonderful foods.  The smells were incredible and I am surprised at the amount of willpower I had when walking through there.  Everything smelled fabulous and I could have eaten my way through that entire market.  They had everything from chocolates and fudges to pasteries, potatoes and paella.  It was wonderful!  Unfortunately, I was too distracted by the food to pull out my camera and get some shots of the market, so you’ll have to go there and check it out on your own!

I tried to post a comment the other day but I guess it didn't stick. I have almost the exact same photo of The Shambles from 1980-something. Yours is much better quality, of course, but it's nice to see it hasn't changed since then. :)
