"First trip to London, Cotswold Way, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon was absolutely wonderful! Our stay in Stratford at Ambleside was a perfect way start our trip. The flower garden at the front door was awash with color and so welcoming! Peter was a perfectly charming host, answered our questions and provided information about the area. Our double room with bath was nicely decorated, twin beds were comfortable and the night-time was quiet! Peter suggested several restaurants for dinner and even gave us a 10% off coupon for the one we chose. Ruth served a wonderful, filling breakfast and we enjoyed a few stories from Peter before we checked out. We really appreciated Ambleside's willingness to book us for one night on a weekend. Ambleside is about a 12 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes to the theater. This was our first experience staying at a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed Peter and Ruth's hospitality! ."

... the Shambles and behind the facades of the shops. Apart from the very strong wind it was worth the climb. We visited the Chapter House with its seven stained glass windows and beautiful flooring. I even managed to spot the one and only 'green man' as I was sitting underneath it. There is a new interactive attraction called the Undercroft, this follows the 2000 year journey of the Minster and is really quite moving especially the section on Resurrection, well ...
The one we have been waiting for! The Ouse has some reputation and needs to be treated with a great deal of respect. It is fast flowing, tidal and not very wide in places for a big river, which then emphasizes the speed of the flow.
John and I go and have a look past the lock to see what is happening with the River and we don't like what we see! How many logs, branches and floating islands do ...
... a "duck weed" issue on the Selby Canal but were surprised on how much there was and how green it was, it didn't look like there was a canal at all, under the luminous green covering.
Selby is a very pleasant small town and we moored in the basin at the junction with the River Ouse, well placed for our for our early set off time with tide on the way up to York ...
... us", runs around with jerry cans collecting diesel from the distributors across the road and then fills up the two boats, oh well, back to "canaltime"!! There could have been worse places to stop and while away some time, as you may see from the photo.
Another glorious day in the sunshine and a fairly short trip on The River Aire to our overnight stop at Beale Lock.
