Photographer's Note

Hello everyone,
still in Cornwall,but this time we are at the most southerly point of England known as the Lizard.

It juts out into the sea, this is where the English Channel meets the Atlantic Ocean.

To my left and up on top of the cliff is the lighthouse.

If you look carefully,on top of the cliff there are people enjoying the view.Some had their binoculars, doing a spot of bird watching.And others were just enjoying the experience of being there.

Whilst we were there,some people pointed out that there was a seal down in the water;it kept poking its nose out for a breath, then it would disappear again, beneath the waves.It was good to see it in its natural habitat.

The little buildings close to the car park house an office for the National Trust, a cafe and a souvenir shop.The Lizard is famous for Serpentine stone, a stone with beautiful colours.You can buy ornaments and lamps made from the polished stone.

In Lizard village, a half a mile walk inland, there is a large car park, and more shops to buy your souvenir and a Cornish pasty.
If you go to Kynance Cove, a mile up the coast, you can see the stone in situ.

Hope that you like the view and thanks for looking.
