We went on a beautiful morning walk + PORTA POTTY!

United States
January 6, 2017 2:05pm CST
Happy Friday Everyone! Yesterday, was gloomy and rainy. The weather forecast estimated rain until the weekend, but I guess Mr. sunshine wanted to make an early appearance. My boyfriend and I went on a beautiful morning walk at the beach before going grocery shopping. The view was lovely! And speaking of porta potties - it was very crowded, and the only parking spot available was near the porta potties! Luckily it didn't smell today. Out of curiosity - do you visit the porta potties? Even if I have to go - I'll wait until another bathroom. They're not for me. How about you?

@infatuatedbby It wasn't easy, especially when visitors came unannounced.

If I'm drunk and really need to go, like at a concert, I use them. Otherwise, I try not to.

That'd make sense, but I still hold it until I find another bathroom.

Is that a photo you took on your walk by the beach? If so, you surely had a gorgeous view! As far as port-a-potties go, I'm a guy, so it doesn't bother me to use them. Well, at least for peeing. I would never use them for going number two!

@infatuatedbby I'd only go #2 in a port-a-potty if it was an emergency and no other options were available. But mind you, I would never sit on their toilet seats. Only squatting for me! hahaha

Yes! The weather said it's supposed to be rainy until the weekend, but it was a nice even warm at one point too! :) And non smelly porta potties was a highlight! I guess because it wasn't too hot out!

@infatuatedbby ....Weather is screwy all over. It is bad when the highlight of your day is when the porta potty doesn't smell bad.

Oh yes, I am the same! And I can't bare to be in a space I can't see out of. So I wouldn't go and would wait unless I really had to go (I would opt for a second alternative, or drive to a store or cleaner restroom)..

@Marty1 Like at a restroom you know if someone is standing there or in the restroom, with a port-a-potty what if someone wants to play a game and shake you or something. I don't know, not a fan they give me creeps too!

I cannot possibly go either. Especially in the narrow box and not being able to see anything after I close the door and its smelly ... so many wrong reasons I can't =)

@LadyDuck Yep , not for me =) The facility needs to re-open their bathrooms though! They have actual bathrooms a couple feet away but I suppose they need fixing but its been out of service for over 3 years now.

Luckily I never had to use them. I would avoid any public toilet if I can. I'd prefer the bushes.

I try to avoid any public toilet if I could also. I used to have a phobia of using them and NEVER used them until I went to work and I couldn't hold it.

@Madshadi The first few months I worked there, I wasn't comfortable especially when I was on my menstrual cycle that on lunch break I'd drive home. My lunch was 30 minutes. It took me 7 minutes to get home, 7 minutes back. Then after awhile, I adjusted.

What are 'porta potties'? Public toilets? portable? I used one when we went to a remote beach side. It was chemically treated so there was no smell.

A bathroom that is portable, in this case it sat on the parking lot ... Here is an example:

Thanks! I love to visit the beach to do some hiking, walking, sight seeing. It was a lovely morning. I never have and hope to not have to ever unless its the last resort.
