Each day is attended by surprises

Here are photographs from Saturday, taken in Nuuksio, by the path between Solvalla and Pirttimäki. Some of the hills were too steep for riding the bicycle, so I had to walk, and at the foot of one such hill I noticed an adder crossing the path. It wasn't in a hurry, keeping still in the middle of the path, probably enjoying the warmth, but when I approached a bit closer the adder moved to the forest.

During the morning I rode the bicycle for 50 kilometers, and in the afternoon my youngest daughter wanted to go for a ride as well, so there were some additional kilometers of riding. A rather active day.
