Squirrel Man, York, England

This morning, we departed our York lodgings after breakfast and walked to the city via the Museum Gardens where we encountered a man who had made friends of local squirrels.

Next to the shopping area and then on to the Jorvik Viking Centre for a tour of this popular attraction which provides a connection with York’s Viking era past based on archaeology.
