Three Hours To Enjoy Rouen

After a restless night – must have been those three desserts and coffee from last evening – I once again went in search of French coffee and to discover treasures I had not seen on the previous two days.

I passed by the restoration taking place at the Hotel de Ville and the Saint-Ouen Abbey Church which was one of the most powerful Benedictine monasteries in Normandy between the 14th and the 16th centuries. There was no admittance but was able to capture a few pictures.

There was also a statue of Napoleon on this horse.

Over a few more streets was the Palace of Justice which is also under renovation but none the less a breathtaking structure.

I was able to capture this photo of the reflection thru a store window.

Before picking up my backpack and heading to the train station, I spent a few moments observing the swans in a nearby park.

My train trip was Rouen, Caan, and Mont St. Michel.
It is breathtaking, awe inspiring and a spectacular edifice!

I have all of Monday, August 27th to explore, discover and to be amazed!
