I checked the ladies room and the coast was clear, so in he flew. I glanced at the two regulars, and this definitely caught their interest, but they weren't smiling. As I stood there guarding the door, and rehearsing what I was going to tell the next female patron, a lady rushed in with that same look in her eye, making a bee line for the restroom. I blocked the door, and explained that my husband was in there, letting her know it was an urgent matter, and without batting an eye, she said, 'Well, I'll just use the men's room," and pushed the door open! "Wait, there's a man in there!" I said, but she looked back at me, announcing, "He's through, he's washing his hands.". She went on in, and he left as if that was a normal thing. At this point, I am laughing pretty hard, and I glance over to check on the regulars, and they are laughing so hard, their coffee is spilling all over. I'm also trying to figure out if someone comes to the bathroom now, which one do I send them into. Keith and the lady both came out, and we all had a good laugh, and I bet you we gave those regulars a good story to tell for the rest of the day.
I'll sign off with a sketch from a fellow hiker's journal. It was sketched by James, who is staying in the same room as Joshua and Katherine (the unfortunate night hikers). Everytime we came and went, he was sitting outside of their room in a chair facing our cottage. We found out later that he was actually sketching our cottage. I am envious of his journal - it's beautifully illustrated!
