We have been wearing 'pedometer' wrist bands which encourage us to complete 10,000 steps a day for the good of our health - not as easy as it sounds!
Today we walked into the woods to try to reach our goal. It was quiet and warm. We saw some deer but too far away and hidden in the foliage to photograph well. On our way back we saw this colourful fungus.
Back home we have had an unusual garden visitor.
We have a whole family of young downy woodpeckers visiting the feeders but this one is different.
Initially we thought that his adult colours had not developed but he is not changing so he is going to be a largely white downy woodpecker..
This evening we walked down to Reston for dinner. Outside the restaurant was a peach tree.
We chose a 'tasting' starter - a series of tiny bites to share.
..and finished with tiny bites of different home-made ice-creams, before walking home again.. (Today's total 18,000 steps and counting..).
