Unintentionally Sexually Suggestive Sign

I did a double take when I came across this while driving through Angels Camp, CA last year. Did that sign really say “Gloryhole Recreation Area,” or was it just my dirty mind? Soon enough, the car was erupting with laughter, so much so that I had to pull over and take a photo. I know “glory hole” can be a non-sexual boating term,  but as someone unfamiliar with nautical culture, I immediately thought “hole for an anonymous penis.” “Recreation” indeed.
