Pikes Place Seattle Washington

For years I have watched my Dads passion go from a fun hobby to a straight up obsession, he cant hardly go to a restroom without snapping a few photos. While on our last family vacation in Paris he even did a google search of unique bathrooms before we left, because he didn't want to miss any. My family (Dad) has scoured the world looking for the most interesting bathroom. We have great pictures from Turkey, Thailand, Costa Rica, and Peru and all are unique in their own way. However, last weekend I came across one of the best bathrooms I've ever seen in my entire life and it was practically in my backyard: Pikes Place Seattle, Washington. As you may already know Pikes Place is famous for its seafood, and for being the birth place of Starbucks coffee. However, their bathroom is unlike anything I have ever seen before. To the untrained eye it looks like every other public restroom until further examination. The tiles on the bathroom floor are in the shape of the male and female chromosomes! XY for the men and XX for the women. As I stood infront of this bathroom, I realized how strange of a fascination this really was. I made Allison take several pictures of me even though she was dying from embarrassment. It was at that moment that I realize that I am my fathers Son! His love of public Loo's has worn off on me and I no longer feel shame or embarrassment for posing in front of a unusual WC! I hope you can appreciate this as much as we Litchfield's do! And remember that taking a camera into the bathroom is always a good idea because you never know what you will find.
