perambulate

When I saw this letter at first I thought, ‘wow, is it really necessary to use this 4-syllable word when you can just say walk or stroll?’ But after reviewing the second definition given, I guess it make sense, the idea of walking to survey/inspect. I was trying to sketch the second part of the definition, in case you’re wondering! ^__^
