"As you venture away from cities and towns the twisty road will open to pastures along the river side.
Grazing cows and cawing birds dot the verdant scape and wide, naked headlands open to big skies.
Beyond - an island of pennies, the rocks of goats and dunes of lolling seals.
This is a world of greens, blues and mythic views - the echoes of siren songs.
At the end of the scenic route is our crescent sliver of a town.Welcome to Jenner By The Sea - a place of magical and piercing beauty."
