It has one of the busiest port cities in Normandy, and a salty, authentic old harbor where fishermen unload their loads of fresh fish and famous scallops. Located a quick ferry ride from Newhaven in the UK and the closest beach town to Paris, today Dieppe is both a travel destination and an authentic fishing town. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Edmund Blampied was a painter, etcher, lithographer, and sculptor.
