... 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 day program commences after we left, though did see the eagles for the birds of prey show and the horses for the jousting knights. The staff are all dressed in medieval times clothing. We thought we would venture up a turret. 75 steps to the walkway before entering the turret we got halfway up (about 200 steps further along a very steep spiral stone stairs started getting claustrophobic and backed down those 200 ...
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 ...

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.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Kilima Hotel York
This hotel, while being within an easy walk of the town centre, was extremely hot and noisy and the rooms are very small. It's overpriced - unless you plan on using the gym etc - which we didn't given we stayed one night only.
The staff were helpful and the breakfast was better than average. Another plus was the blackout lining on the curtains which made it much easier to sleep.
We spent 1 month travelling around the UK and this was the most overpriced accommodation we experienced in all that time.
I wouldn't stay here again.
