When I read about Balbec, I think about Dieppe, where my mom spent her childhood. Like Balbec / Cabourg, Dieppe is on the channel. It has a charming harbor and pebble beaches. The sea is absolutely beautiful, especially under stormy skies.

Dean and I spent a weekend there during our European Tour last year. We were hypnotized by the sea. We learned that its surreal milky glow comes from the high amount of chalk in the water (Dieppe is surrounded by cliffs made of chalk). Take a look:
