Since I’ve moved, my commute to work has shortened by more than half, and it only takes about 10 minutes to get to and from work. The old route was at the very shortest, a half an hour. But it was mostly longer than that.
I’ve worked out a route that takes me through some of Baltimore’s prettiest and greenest neighbourhoods, and I thought I’d share some of the scenery with you. I did a spot of “drive-by shooting” this afternoon on my way home today. It the pictures look a bit hazy, it was 97* this afternoon, with almost an equal percentage of humidity!
Love this garage and the amazing windows. I’d convert it to a party barn! This is the house where our pediatrician and her half-dozen children lived. There’s a great chandelier on the top porch on the right side. I love the nine-over-nine windows! There are a lot of these stone houses in this part of the neighbourhood. I don’t think that a French tri-couleur flag would look too out of place hanging there, do you? This is a block of amazing flats. I love the fanlight over the door and the arches on the porches. The flats in this building are all huge and the building’s from the 1920’s, so they’re beautifully detailed. This house has had a lot of work done to it, which has taken away some of its charm. The ramp you see isn’t for the house. It’s for one of the numerous paths that wind their way through the neighbourhood. They’re public paths and are all marked with signs like this one. It’s one of the distinctive features of the area. I love seeing unexpected sights like this in the middle of the city. It’s a small stream which winds its way from the country down to Baltimore’s harbour.
Thanks for coming along on my ride home!
