Six photos from SaturdayPosted: May 17, 2010
Last Tuesday, I ventured out for a stroll into Lancaster city. It was a dual-purpose walk: I needed to pick up a few things at the Central Market, and I also wanted to see some of the city’s beauty again.
I just moved back to Lancaster after being away for a couple of years. It’s a city with a lot of history, charm, and culture. In addition to Central Market, which is the oldest running farmer’s market in the U.S., there is a growing art district, a college-town atmosphere, a variety of musical attractions, many shoppes, cafes, and boutiques, a local minor league baseball team (Lancaster Barnstormers), museums, and so on.
While there are parts of the city that don’t do much for the eyes, there are several sections that are lovely to walk through. I walked to market again last Saturday, remembering to take my camera, and was able to get some good photos while I was out. Here are some highlights. Click the photos to see them in their glory!
I found a house on Walnut St. with these beautiful flowers on the windows.

Here is one of my favorite homes in Lancaster City.
Eventually, I made it back home with my purchases from the market, and set about making lunch…
…and my lunch accidentally turned out looking very classy, so I figured that I might as well take a picture of it, too!
Vietnamese egg rolls, fresh cucumbers with ranch and cheddar, and coffee. And it was delicious.
It was a beautiful spring day, and I’m happy to have gotten some time in with my camera. I’m looking forward to getting some more pics from around Lancaster and posting them at some point.
