Walkability

“Walkabout” is a term for which dictionaries have variations on the definition, but involves the movement of the indigenous peoples of Australia.  It is a term modified here a bit to become “walkability”, which is used to describe the characteristics of an area with regard to the enjoyment one can have when wandering throughout.  If one is going to use that term, then s/he can define those characteristics.

Shepherdstown, WVa. is a place that ranks very high on my walkability list.

The photographs included here essentially demarcate the entrance, center, and point of exit for the main portion of the town.  I had not been to Shepherdstown for a bit over a year, and so it was nice to be back on such a pleasant day.  In that time, several stores had closed and been replaced by new businesses.  A few favourites remained, thank goodness, which meant that the walkability has remained unchanged.

Take care.
