Wonderful Rouen


It's been raining in Newtown so I decided to post the cool beautiful skies of Rouen France that I took in February of this year. You might remember seeing some of these buildings in previous posts.

  6. Wonderful pictures James. I've never been to Rouen, but it looks as if this is a place for me. I love the church of course. It's magnificant.
    However I also find the funny building on the first picture very interesting. Are people actually living there? - Must be very tiny apartments-:)

    Best regards

  15. Very beautiful to see. (Have never been there.)

    To answer your question on my blog, yes, that is a turkey vulture in the header shot. It was pure luck as we were in the car, driving - not stopped.

    Am enjoying your blog and seeing places we have visited as well as those we have not. Interesting that you lived in Irving. We have friends in Waxahachie and another who used to live in Grand Prairie.

  17. Hi James - You're right. It would be worth the train ride. Next time, I think, we'll head that direction.

    I love that narrow building in the first shot. Well, heck, I love everything in both shots!
