Sidewalks Are a Must

wilmington-1-025

I would love to take a stroll on this sidewalk every day. I don’t think I would ever be bored. 

Please bear with me as I get all of the 2008 photos uploaded to my blog. I am making room for the 2009 season of flowers. I have a great many to upload in this series of old houses.

    That’s lovely, Anna. What a gorgeous sidewalk!
    Wilmington is a beautiful historic town. So old but aged well. There is a new section but I don’t go there very often. It’s about a 4 hour drive from my house to this area of NC. NC is such a long state from the East to the West. I live closer to the mountains. It’s all good!

  2. Thanks for the lovely stroll… so picturesque… no “power-walking” through this neighborhood!
    Isn’t that the truth. In fact….I got so carried away that I ended up in the wrong part of town. The police came and escorted me back to the tourist area. I had strolled unknowingly out of town. It didn’t seem like the wrong part of town to me but of course……I was too busy taking pics of interesting stuff.

    We haven’t any sidewalks in our suburban neighborhood…All the automobile worship meant no one was planning to walk in the late fifties! I love walking through historic neighborhoods…Charleston, SC is one of my favorites~~all the sweet gardens. Lovely neighborhood you’ve shown us…

    Thank you. I love it too. Oh isn’t Charleston grand! The shot that was fired that was heard around the world is home to the most slow paced culture on earth. I love to visit and we almost moved there when we were first out of the Air Force in 1994. But…we could not get over being on a island all the time. Everywhere you went…you crossed a bridge. It sure was pretty.

    I agree. I wonder why you call them sidewalks and we call them pavements!
    That’s interesting. We have paved streets and sidewalks. If we walked on the pavement, we’d be walking on the street. There are signs around town that say—stay off the pavement—meaning…walk on the sidewalk and not the street. I guess you would get confused. As if I went to the UK, I’d be walking on the streets getting run over.
