Cee’s Oddball Challenge: What’s this fascination with old loos?

Cee invites us every week to post some of our ‘Odd Ball’ pics, which to me means, the ones that we’re not sure why we took, as they don’t fit into any other category than ‘Odd Ball’.

The centrepiece of UShaka Marine World in Durban South Africa, is a wonderful aquarium, set in a recreated, rusty old cargo ship from the 1920’s. The crew’s ablution section, especially the toilet area, seemed to hold a great fascination for most people, including our family. This first picture was taken by hubby when our two South African grandchildren came to stay with us for a holiday. My mom was game to have a seat and rest her weary legs; the children just did as they were told, but as you may notice, I avoided sitting on the loo in public.


When our granddaughter came over from New York, some ten years later, we took her to the aquarium, and of course it was mandatory that she should also have her pic taken on one of these loos. Family tradition, I guess. πŸ™‚ I’m not sure what happened with this photo, but it sure looks really weird. Love the sparkly shoes though!

      • You are the queen of titles! I have to focus my scattery brain so that at least people have SOME clue from the title about the article. But you have the ability to hide the punch line somehow. You’re the perfect title tease. You make us want to read, then whammo you deliver something that pertains to the title but in an unexpected way. If I could just capture that sense of the unexpected the title of my life would be happy! πŸ™‚

  4. Love the family tradition…but you know I do find rusty old ships quite scary… πŸ˜‰ You have wonderfully inventive photos to share Sylvia, love them all πŸ™‚ xx

  5. Hehe – I reckon it’s safer not to ask. Mind you, old loos make great planters! Especially for any plant that produces loads of bright flowers.
