    Glance Along

    I have a question about this usage pattern of "glance along":


    He glanced along a line of houses.

    Is this "glance along" pattern, which could be found on google, wrong? Would this rewrite:

    He glanced from one end of a line of houses to the other end.

    be better?

    Re: Glance Along

    Your use of glance along is fine. I don't find your rewrite to be an improvement.
