In this installment of my Alphabet series, we’re headed somewhere we’ve been before.
Le Tréport, located on the gorgeous Côte d’Albâtre in Normandy, is home to a picturesque coastal breakwater harbour.
The town sits at the mouth of the Bresle River and has enjoyed a rich and active history in both fishing and shipping.
It’s also one of the places the Vikings landed back in the 10th century, and has been a base for sea rescue since the 1880s.
Of course I knew none of this before visiting. Truth be told I really only wanted to visit the funicular and see where one of my favourite television series was filmed.
So taking a leisurely walk along the harbour was an unexpected treat, and a perfect end to the day.
