One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is walk around the Fan District in Richmond, Va. It's a large residential district within the city limits featuring row houses; many of them built in the 1920's and 1930's. There are so many things to look at and enjoy, here are just a few:
I started at my Dad's house where he showed me some of the things he was growing in his garden including these cool peppers!
As I started my walk, I spotted this cool Mustang. There are quite a few old cars in the historic district, but it was cool to see one this well restored.
Welcome to Richmond, you can't park here. It doesn't matter what day I go, there are always street cleanings. I guess that's good, except if you happen to forget and leave your car parked on the street.
I guess no one needs pay phones anymore...
There were so many massive rosemary bushes that I saw on my walk today. This was just one of them:
Benedictine High School's chapel doors:
And the steeple at St. Mark's Episcopal and the flag through the trees.
Since Virginia Commonwealth University is close to this area, there are many students that ride their bike to class. There are bikes on nearly every sign post throughout the fan-here is just one of the many that I saw on my walk.
I love these doors! There are a lot of really unique doors and houses throughout the fan-maybe I can do a post of just those! I love the glass!
I love succulents. One of the things that I love about the fan is that many people have manicured lawns and have a lot of really cool plants like this!

Thanks for taking a walk with me!
