Public bathrooms aren’t the sort of places most of us are tempted to take photos. And, let’s face it, most public bathrooms aren’t that interesting. However, over the past several months, I’ve been in some public bathrooms that were interesting enough that they deserved a photo (or several in once instance).
Here is my gallery of public bathroom photos.
The bathroom that will not run out of toilet paper anytime soon.
I’m not sure who is in charge of the women’s bathroom at Bravo Burrito in St. Cloud, but they are to be commended for ensuring there is plenty of toilet paper. There are two giant toilet paper holders on one side of the toilet, along with an old-fashioned holder built into the tile on the other side … not a one of them empty. For good measure, there is a partial roll of toilet paper on the back of the toilet.
The bathroom with the delightful mural.
The women’s bathroom at the Trader Joe’s in Eagan, Minnesota, has the most delightful wall mural, featuring items floating on a sea of unrolled toilet paper. This is the sort of bathroom that a toddler in potty training would find fun.
The bathroom with the fancy chaise longue.
My brother introduced Hubby and I to a song by the band Wet Leg (a very appropriate name for this blog post) called “Chaise Longue.” We heard the song not too long before I walked into the women’s bathroom at the Rochester Event Center and saw this … one super-de-duper fancy white chaise longue. I HAD to take a photo.
Incidentally, the men’s room had no such furniture. Now, you might think this chaise would be for nursing mothers, which would be a good use for it, but there was a separate nursing room in the event center, so I’m not quite sure the purpose of this and why it needed to be so fancy.
The intriguing bathroom at Linden Hill Historic Estate.
In my last blog post, I discussed a sleepover Hubby and I had at Linden Hill Historic Estate in Little Falls, Minnesota, and I promised a post on one of the bathrooms. I’m making good on my promise here.
There are numerous bathrooms in the Musser house at Linden Hill, with three of them within spittin’ distance of our room. This one was my favorite for a number of reasons, not least of which was the mechanism for flushing the toilet. Details in the photos and captions below.
With all these interesting features, don’t you want to stay at Linden Hill to check out this bathroom? But, there’s one more feature that’s a treat for visitors … the view out the window.
The only “bathroom” with a better view of the outdoors is the open air toilet with only two wood walls to shield you from onlookers at the top of Lookout Mountain at Cascade River State Park near Grand Marais. Unfortunately, I was too exhausted from the climb to remember to take a photo.
Have you run into any interesting public bathrooms during your excursions? If so, please share the details.
