The once-every-eight-years Armada has descended upon us again. The Armada is some 70 tall sail ships that come to Rouen and stay there for 2 weeks.
The boats can be visited, and there's plenty of activity going around the ships. Then, on the 14th of July, during the French national holidays, the ships set sail, one after the other (more on that later).
I went to Rouen and had a quick look at the ships. although the weather was not great, they do look majestic.
Here are the photos (photos are linked in from another site, so they may take a bit longer). To look at the photos in a bigger size click here:

The photos have been highly compressed, if not they'll take hours to load, so excuse the grain.. and because they are located on a public photo site, they all have been watermarked with my logo (sorry...).
I've not put any comments, so you'll need to look at them without me telling you what you already know...
