A Loo with a View!



I wonder who could possibly guess
This vantage point and its address!
A circular window designed for views:
A lake designed for an evening cruise!
Surely I must be somewhere smart
Where turrets and windows play a part!
There's not the slightest indication
That I'm in a room at the Woy Woy station!
And what a room! Just one of many
Where people go to 'spend a penny'!
Whatever epithets others choose,
Australians call such places loos!
One sits at one ease in this fair 'loo'
And they don't charge anything for the view!

A very different view here:

I am a visual thinker. Enough said?

What a view from the loo? Is this loo the same as the British meaning of the loo.
How funny!

How funny! One time we stayed in an old hotel in Vancouver BC where we could view the cityscape from the clawfoot bathtub (on a high floor -- I don't think it was opposite anybody else's window ;>)). It was a cheap hotel but we've never had such a fun city view and will always remember it.
