Thursday Travel: City of York (Part 2)



After lunch, we walked along the river bank for a while, away from the hustle and bustle of Yorks busy streets.



Made a couple turns, we were in the Museum Gardens.



What a lovely place to sit in the sunshine on the Sunday afternoon.


People enjoyed the surrounding with families and friends.


St. Mary Abbey ruins are worth to stroll through and appreciate what once stood high in this area:


The Abbey was first built in 1088. It is picturesque and nostalgic.


Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour. 🙂


I don’t normally have time to read stories in the early morning. So glad I did this morning, it gave a chance to share it with you through my scheduled post. It’s a moving story written by an eye surgeon, his story and his patients. At the end he says,

“…To know that I had touched so many lives, that I had  made such a difference. I don’t say I miss practising medicine that much, but it felt good to know my years as a surgeon had truly not been in vain.”

Do visit. you will be glad you did, “A Guest

Lal Singh was another moving story I have read again and again.

“So thank you Lal Singh, for the fruits and the ‘mithaai’ and the simple joy of watching you come in and tell me that I, as a doctor, was next to god.”

Yes, the eye surgeon did the poem for my humble photo last week.


Thank you for visiting!

  1. Good morning, Amy,
    Now these pictures of yours show me that – even after having been to York for nearly 2 weeks by now – I still need to go back as I haven’t seen all that is worth while yet! 😉
    Have a wonderful beginning of autumn,

    • Good Thursday morning, Pit! Only two weeks. I had no idea you went. 🙂
      Thank you for your compliment. I’d like to go back in the near future.
      It’s going to cool down starting next week. 🙂


  2. Your shout outs, Amy got me teary eyed yesterday. I don’t have time to think and put into words my reaction. Thanks for sharing the doctor’s and the poet’s impacts on lives.
    I have roots still in England and would love to go and see York. The beautiful and mystical remains of the Abbey were captured by you. ❤


    • Thank you for reading Dr. Hb’s moving stories and eloquent poem. I thought you’d appreciate his writing since you’re a writer. ❤ 🙂
      I was glad we spent a day in York. 🙂
