What's that bit of blue peeking over the top of the wall?

In my never-ending quest to find blue things to show you, I've found something unique. A bunch of blue portable sanitation units--(ahem!) porta potties. We were driving down the highway, and I spotted this place. It's where blue outdoor toilets rest between jobs.

They were lined up ten deep for about 500 feet!

Notice the one on the right is sporting some white graffiti.

There's always an oddball hanging around!

An open invitation.

I'll bet you have never seen so many portable sanitation units of any color!

OMG, I just started cracking up to myself at the thought of hidding behind you taking pictures of you taking pictures of those porta potties and posting it as MY blue monday! LOL

Now that's a LOT of porta-potties! I've SEEN as many in various spots here in Southern California but never thought to snap photos of them. They DO make for a unique Blue Monday post ;--)
Mine's up at Sacred Ruminations ... blue views of Lake Arrowhead ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

xinex said...

Oh my! Is that the storage for them? I can't imagine anyone needing so many. When they were building our pool, we had one of those parked on our driveway. I couldn't go near it...Christine

Love it, Sally!!! I'm still chuckling over these pictures! Who knew that blue toilets could be displayed in such an artful manner!!!

Be blessed,

LV said...

Happy to see you watching for blues as well. I started to make a picture of one of these toilets to share. Of course, there were not this many. That's a lot of porta potties.

Funky Junk Interiors said...


Blue Monday indeed!

Came over from Cottage Instincts and I'm glad I did. Starting my Monday the blue way never felt so good. LOL


RobinfromCA said...

Oh, my! It looks like they're getting ready for the county fair!!

I posted my Blue Monday post last night and - duh - forgot to link in. Seriously, my brain takes little mini vacations and doesn't tell me!


Patti VZ said...

Well, Sally, the week can only get better with starting off with blue stinking potties! :) LOL!!

claudie said...

Excuse me Sally, but I need to go use the potty right now!!!!!!!! LOL
Happy Blue Monday
Love Claudie

Shy said...

I saw the blue peeking at the sky and this post is funny, who would have thought that this portable bathroom is a good post for Blue Monday. Good job Sally nice shots.

Btw, I have an award for you in my BM post.

Musings of A Minister said...

Now that's funny. And blue of course.

Maria's Space said...

That is a great idea for blue Monday. Love it.

Patricia said...

Hi Sally! I followed the link from Jean Stockdale's blog to your Blue Monday photo challenge and thought it would be fun to participate today.

We have a neighbor who sometimes puts port-a-potties in his yard when he has a party! Fortunately, we live on enough acreage that they are a comfortable distance from our house, but....

Nice to meet you!


Unknown said...

Your post put a smile on my face! I hate the thought of using those things, but sometimes you do what you gotta do! Right???

Hope u had a great day!
:) Diane

Betsy Banks Adams said...
