BPC #63 On The Street Where She Lives

BPC #63 On The Street Where She Lives
From the stoop:

My Blythes and I live in Baltimore Maryland on S. Potomac St. Our neighborhood is named Canton.

The homes on my block are now just over a hundred years old and sport a Baltimore tradition----marble steps.

If you are a "native" of Baltimore these steps are referred to as the "stoop". As in, "I'm goin' out ta' sit on the stoop, hon'."

Sittin' on the stoop allows you to observe/see/experience Baltimore city life "Canton" style. Many days I will sit on the stoop with my coffee and nook (or computer) and watch the world go by. From the neighbors sharing a stoop and shooting the breeze with each other, to small children riding their bikes, to pretty girls in high heels walking down to the Canton Square to eat & drink at a local pub, to the dog walkers, or even crazy doll collectors who have no fear taking his/her dolls out of the house and taking photos of them, you can see and experience it all living in the city.....
