Hmm...having issues with the grey water waste tank. We noticed this problem on our first trip out, the water took forever to drain away and when we had a shower, nearly flooded the bathroom. Ian has tried everything to try and rectify this, from pulling the pipe off the holding tank to placing MB on levelling blocks so the water could run one way or another. No blockage was found, and he is still as baffled by the situation. Good job MB has a long guarantee 'cos it may have to go back to the dealer to be sorted.
Off to York today and couldn't have been easier to drive in. A Park and Ride 2 miles away and a 20-minute bus ride into the town centre. Armed with bus passes, I was very surprised that money still had to change hands to the driver. Only £1.20 each so not to bad and actually very good value considering the all day parking was free.
York was quiet. No crowds to fight our way through and every attraction within easy walking distance. With the Jorvic experience not booked until 11.20 am, and because our timings into York was way out, we took ourselves off to the River.
The Jorvic Viking Centre was very well managed. Only one household allowed in the gondolas so we had one to ourselves. Enjoyed the whole experience, although I think they may have dumbed down the smells. Seem to remember 30 years ago having to hold my nose 'cos it was so pungent. Maybe our masks masked the stink.
Next was York Minster. Beautiful building and a first ever visit for us.
The Treasurer's House was but a stones throw from the Minster, a NT place we had planned to visit. When we tried to book though, found all the slots taken but thought we would go anyway, just in case. Only 6 people allowed in at any one time and 4 of them hadn't turned up for the 3 pm slot so yep, we were allowed in.
With so much still to see and do around the York area, we have booked to stay on the camp site for another couple of night.
And some more images of York.
