June 11, Day 3: Rouen (continued): The Armada

Every four or five years, tall ships assemble in Rouen for a ten-day festival called the Armada. Since our visit coincided with this festival, of course we couldn't miss it. We took a wonderful sightseeing trip down the river to see all the ships.
Our boat, Les Iles Chausey

The Pont Gustave-Flaubert is the highest vertical lift bridge in the world.

Note the hot-air balloon tethered on the shore.
Not only tall ships, but a Ferris wheel too!
