Around Reston

We opted for a quieter day with the intense heat and temperatures forecasted to be 90 F. We took a leisurely walk through the local woods. There are a series of paths and trails marked out. It was still very humid ander the trees.

We were lucky enough to see about 5 deer grazing near the stream. They seemed unperturbed by us.

We freshened up witha swim in one of the outdoor swimming pools that are scattered around Reston for the residents to use.
Later in the day we made a visit to the second centre of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum which is based near Dulles Airport.

There were a multitude of planes and spaceships to see.

We saw one of the retired Concordes.

And a replica of the Apollo 11 landing module. There was even  a space rocket named Maggie!
