A Magical Moment in Rouen

We had two magical moments in Rouen.

One was when we exited our hotel to go find a restaurant for dinner. The sky was full of starlings chirping madly as the cathedral bells rang in the background.

The starlings were fantastic. I was unable to catch the moment they started swarming in the sky, turning this way and that all together, as if they had a choreographer. They were all over the Palais de Justice. Each of the the gothic spires has lots of little points sticking out of them and there was a bird on each one, almost as if they were part of the ornate design. If you look closely in the still picture, you can see a bird on every little thing it was possible to land on.

Really magical.
