After a quick lunch in this rather elegant branch of CaffÃ© Nero – a tasty Panini and an excellent espresso,
I wandered around York for a bit. There are lots of interesting buildings, old streets, a quite lively market and a shop selling some rather nice handmade chocolates.
Along the way, I saw this rather lovely item on a street corner:
And there is a quite tasteful fountain in the city centre, which was quite calm when I was there. Some years ago, on another visit to York on a rather windy day, the fountian was spraying over a very wide area…
On the way to the Museum Gardens, I spotted this Boer War memorial, which struck me as being very much in keeping with the older buildings in York.
 They do a very good espresso. The sooner CaffÃ© Nero open in Newcastle the better…
 Not that I’d indulge in such things, of course, oh no….
