the beauty of Zennor

We visited Zennor on the western tip of Cornwall.

D H Lawrence spent some time here and said of Zennor: "At Zennor one sees the infinite Atlantic, all peacock-mingled colours, and the gorse in sunshine, Zennor is  a most beautiful place: a tiny granite village nestling under high shaggy moor-hills and a big sweep of lovely sea beyond, such a lovely sea, lovelier even than the Mediterranean...It's the best place I have been in I think"

I have to agree.
