Dieppe Harbor and Quay

Fishing vessels from Dieppe harbor supply the fine restaurants of Paris with much of their fresh seafood . . .

. . . so the seafoodserved in Dieppe must be even fresher. Here the fishing boats share the harbor with yachts, sailboats and other pleasure craft. The food we had in restaurants along the Quai Henri IV lived up to the French reputation and the service surpassed it. The city has been a popular destination for the British for many years and English is widely, if not universally, understood. Contrary to stereotype, they don’t even seem to mind conversing in it.

From Dieppe, there are ferries which cross the English Channel to Newhaven. The ferry port is at the northeast side of the mouth of the river, just below La Chapelle de Notre-Dame de Bonsecours, the small chapel that sits on top of the cliff and which is visible from most anywhere in town.
