By the Falls

The spot of the find
It's been a long time but I finally found a coin. Didn't think I'd ever find one again.

I was off work today and we decided to go to Niagara Falls for the day. Haven't been to the Falls in long time and today was a perfect day to go. It wasn't too hot so it - great for wandering around.

Tourists were all about - taking as many photos of the sites as I was. We were walking along the falls and I spotted a brand new shiny 2004 penny - Canadian no less. The penny looked like it was fresh from the Mint.

Total find: 1¢

Loose Change

It's been a while since I've blogged. Seems that people are more willing to leave pennies behind but not larger denominations.

Last few weeks (mostly in June, except for the one found today, I found some loose change:

- a 2007 quarter left behind in a shopping cart. Found this one when I was grocery shopping on June 11

- a 2004 nickel outside my local Metro. Found it on June 13 when I was out walking my dog

- a 1982 nickel at the Canadiana Restaurant on June 15. I belong to the Writers and Editors Network. We hold our monthly breakfast meetings at The Canadiana and this is where I found the nickel

- a 2004 penny on the east side of John Street, south of Adelaide near a lamp/bike post. It was found during my lunch time stroll on June 17

- 2011 nickel and a a penny whose date is hard to make out cause it's so green were found on June 18 in the parking lot (Front & Peter) where I like to park my car when I drive to work

- a 2008 dime at Wacky Wings on June 26 - all you can eat wing night

- 1984 and 1994 pennies found on July 2 near a mail box

And finally today, a 1976 quarter from Bermuda. Found it in the lobby of a hospital (took my mom there for an appointment).

Total finds: 54¢ Canadian (one quarter, three nickels, one dime and four pennies) and 25¢ Bermuda
