Last week’s photo challenge seemed unfair.
Alan Phillips’ image showed a men’s restroom. (You could tell by the urinals.)
But never underestimate the power of a woman.
Two of the 1st 3 correct answers came from people who — presumably — have never set foot inside that men’s room. (Or probably any other.)
Christopher Austin — followed by Pat Saviano and Karen Como — knew that the shiny new loo is located at Compo Beach. It — and its women’s room cousin — are nestled between Joey’s and the lifeguard shack.
Other correct guesses came from Michael Calise (whose license plate reads “Compaug”). Pete Powell, Andrew Colabella and Les Dinkin.
They replace a pair of very old, incredibly grungy and truly repulsive restrooms. It’s not really beach season yet, but they’re already getting good use.
And rave reviews.
Parts of the Compo Beach improvement plan — and the new fees for beach stickers — have drawn criticism. But everyone can agree: This was money well spent. (Click here for the photo, and all responses.)
This week’s photo challenge is — like that we run most — a spot every Westporter (regardless of gender) can go to. If you know where it is, click “Comments” below.
