There’s just something about bathrooms . . . 

[After our morning stroll (yes Katie, being of high school age, preferred sleep to the walk), we went back for a visit to the Kohler Arts Center.  We couldn’t check into camp, about 20 minutes away, until 1:00 pm.]

[The Center was still lightly populated at this hour of the morning, so the person at the information desk suggested we check out the restrooms first – all five of them, regardless of gender.]
