York Nov 2014

Well its that time of year, the time when we spend time in York, a time that I really like.  The first visit of two before Christmas, this one and one just before Christmas week.

York 16th to the 18th of November.

Day one, Sunday 16th Nov 2014

Well I emptied the van for the trip, we didn't need much in there anyway. We took some food but there are plenty of shops close by if needed.

We had letters from the Caravan Club to say that they are altering the site at York and there was some noise from the workmen but not a lot. There was however some changes, York site was always a very strict, stick to the rules site, now you can park which ever way you want, very strange.

After we booked in we wandered into town and eventually the Kings Arms. Where we had a couple of beers before heading back to the van. Dot did have some trouble in there, with a woman who was sat opposite, who accused her of staring at her and her disabled husband. Poor woman, it must have been hard for her but no excuse to be impolite and poor Dot was just facing that way.

Day two, Monday 17th Nov 2014

After another long day in the shops but not really buying anything much, we decided to go for something to eat. We were going to go to a restaurant but as we were near the Spoons, we popped in there for some food and a beer, or two.

We didn't stay out late and settled back into the van early.  As you may have noticed, I am still not tacking photos like I used to, I have to make the effort to get better at it.

Day three, Tuesday 18th Nov 2014 

Just before breakfast the power went off, not just to the van (as usual) but to the whole campsite. So we got ready and left for a visit to McArthur Glen, do do some shopping and get breakfast.

When we arrived I noticed that the new tier we had just got for the van was getting flat and pumped it up, while Dot went off to find some food.

After we had been shopping for about an hour, Dot started to feel unwell, I was feeling bad but thought it was just me.  So we gave up shopping and headed home but not before I pumped up the tier again.

Looks like it was the sandwiches we has for breakfast, Dot was really unwell for a couple of days. As for the tire, when we got home it was still going down, so I would have to take it back to the shop.
