It’s in wanting to walk and the sense of wellbeing and security in walking. Homes and gardens overlook the street, rather than bleakness of garage doors and fear of cars backing unheeding over crossovers.
It’s in the softness of the limestone walls that lift the homes above the footpaths, giving height to the verandahs and a sense of security to the people sitting overlooking or chatting with the passers by.
It’s in the sense of surprise and anticipation as you walk through the passages and peak in the portal gates of some of the elevated homes. What’s around the next corner?
