Today, we went to the C.S. Lewis Nature Reserve.  Previously owned by Lewis himself, it is thought that this area of woodland was the inspiration for Narnia.
 Greeting you as you enter the reserve; is a small and tranquil pond, teaming with wildlife.
Don't be fooled.  It's not that serene.
It stinks like rotten eggs.

This guy has been nicknamed The Stinksicker. I'll leave the reasons for that to your imagination, but here, I was concerned that I didn't any tissues if things went wrong and thought we should keep walking quickly.  But you soon get used to the smell.
These boys are just loving being brothers.

                                                                      Funkyness growing.
Little people?


Pouch full of Conkers.
Hey Dude!
Gorgeous Gardens in front of C.S. Lewis' home.
To top of the afternoon, we had a little play in a friend's amazing tree house.

I would love to holiday let this place for a couple of nights.

Awesome day. 
Exactly how a weekend day should play out.
Hanging out with Coombe Mill again this week and checking out what the other Country Kids have been up to!

  1. Looks like such fun! I haven't been on a branch swing for years and years, brings back happy memories. I hadn't thought of taking a sketch book into the woods with Kitty but that's a great idea so I'm nicking it!
    I love all the fungi and funky shizzle growing on the woodland floor at the moment, it's like a whole other world down there! Beautiful shots x

  2. what a wonderful place, will have to see if we can take a few days next year and visit xxx

  3. I did have a chuckle at the children's faces by the stinky lake! What a magical place to explore and have fun, your photos of the different fungi are great. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
