I saw a photograph of Sennen Beach in a Cornwall tourism magazine. The location called to me, but when I arrived at the beach, I was a bit let down. It’s not that the beach wasn’t nice. It was just that the beach was a beach and the weather was way too cold and windy to really enjoy a sun bath or a dip in the sea.
So instead of braving the flying grit of a beach walk, my husband and I set off towards Land’s End via the South West Coast Path as recommended by our Atlantic Heights B&B hosts, Tony and Carol. (Excellent B&B, by the way…but more on that in a later post).
I have to say that the view of Sennen Cove from the cliffs of Pedn-men-du was much more captivating than the beach itself. Nothing at beach level hinted at the display of colors, both on land and sea, that would become visible from up above the Cove.
