Oh Dear, you know I’m weird right? (but you love me for it anyway I hope LOL)
Yes, another toilet post… but with Conveniences as special as the ones we are visiting in Kawakawa, it’s worth taking your time and appreciating the view as well as the amenities.
Fortunately the rush on the Ladies side of the toilets has all but dissipated for the moment so I feel free to take my time and take a few (ok, quite a few) photographs.
Look for the photo that shows the mirror on the wall …with light from the coloured bottles streaming onto it… or the baby changing table that will entertain your baby with shapes and colours…
…or the Ladies half of the most brilliant security gates (for when the Public Toilets are closed for the night) , even better than the one on the Gents side I think, and one that I would loooovvve to copy in the garden I might get to own one day.
Check out the crooked little window high up on the wall… and since the second Ladies cubical was empty and the door was open after I’d exited, I took a quick snap of that too, and loved how even the toilets themselves don’t match.
Unconventional down to the finest detail.
The luminescence of the bottles in the walls when lit from the outside and seen from the inside could easily rival any stained glass window in any Cathedral… it’s stunning and your eyes are delighted as they dance across patterns, shape and colour.
Why do so many Public places have to look like concrete slab boxes when they could look like this? Everyone we saw was smiling… having fun.
I wish the world could be filled with more of such whimsy and be less grey /bright white/ stainless steel / clinically serious.
I also love not having to coax any of the five children ”to please ”go” before we get back into the van and back on the road” because at this Lavatory they couldn’t wait to have a look and a giggle inside!
