Wonderful Dieppe

John went and Alan went - ByeBye Blighty

Dieppe, here we come

Dieppe is Wonderful

First thing to do is to register, get your badge and make friends with the Badge Ladies

Here is the little house where John stayed with Anne and Roger

Just peep around the corner of our street - KITES!

So many Kite makers - These delightful ladies were from Austria

Here is one of their kites - Music to the Eyes!

Exquisite Kites made using Honesty seed cases - nice work JB!

Peter Westergaard sent a lovely film of Minkey and his kite. Thank you Peter

Minkey soon starts to amaze the crowds and delight the children

The Grand Parade with the most amazing Stilt Dancers

Here they are later with their exotic Bird costumes

Minkey makes friends wherever he goes

Dressed for the occasion, Minkey is the life and soul of the party - of course

Outside (for a smoke, of course), John saw this lovely moon

Meanwhile, whilst John is outside, Minkey disgraces himself

We walk home beside the harbour after the party

Next morning, we find Minkey with his feet up on the fireplace

What can you say?

One day, we found the little fellow mounting a seagull - another time, swinging on a chandelier
He certainly knows how to enjoy himself!!!

Here is a view from our house - unusual, eh?

La Mer - et les cailloux sur la plage

Time to explore Old Dieppe...
Here is the 18th century stagecoach terminus of the Dieppe-Rouen route

Entrancence from the street

The stables with accomodation for the drivers above

It was here that John met Claudine Hardy;
a lovely old lady who was eager to show him around

Time to leave 13 Rue Des Cordiers

Goodbye Dieppe .... à bientot

Home on the ferry. Tired but happy -- very happy
