My walk this week brings us to Scottsville, VA, which is located on the James River 17 miles south of Charlottesville and 60 miles west of Richmond.
Quick slideshow is synced to the song “Somewhere Out There” by Our Lady Peace.
Ready for to share in the walk?
Here we go….
Scottsville is a town that has less than 1,000 residents! The downtown area has 153 historic buildings and one of them is called Victory Hall, which is a fully restored theatre.
The folks at Victory Hall were getting ready to have an event – and the pattern in folded equipment had an artsy kinda feel:
Walking on away from historic downtown – we can see some of what is nestled in these here hills.
Following the sandy path along the water’s edge you can take off the shoes to walk in the sand with bare feet. A little splash of joy.
Along the stroll we enjoy calm waters and then take in the scenic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Looking up at the blue sky – and looking down at the brick pathway to the home we were visiting.
Last week’s walk (at West Point, VA) featured Virginia homes with LARGE southern style wrap around porches, but today we have a Virginian home with a small, flat porch in a Southern Colonial style brick house.
I guess that this style of Colonial is usually noted for having symmetrical balance, shutters and an ornate feature above the front door, strong vertical lines out front (signaling formality and dignity), and for having contrast with white columns and darker house color (brick). And yes, that’s a selfie of moi in the lower picture – just for fun!

This is linked to Kan’s Moment of Joy, Debbie’s look up look down, where this week Debbie shows us views of the Mucem museum complex from sea level and Dawn’s lovely lingering look at Windows. Have a great hump day – and get out there and walk – even if it is a short walk.
Come on now – you’ll be glad you did. 🙂
