Looking for coins

Famous bridge

Years ago, my brother started the tradition of hiding coins when he travels. Last summer on his honeymoon in City of Canals and Gondolas, he and his wife hid coins in several public spots. I felt like I was on a scavenger hunt as we stopped at this famous bridge to look for the American dime he had hidden.

The coin was still there.

That is so nifty. Did you bring it home?

Cool. I hope you left if for someone else to find.

We left the coin -- and added another one.

This is such a fun notion in so many ways!
I like this picture so much, the arch framing the shot makes all the difference.

I love that story! It reminds me of how my mom's family used to leave hidden notes for each other when they would visit each other's homes.

A few years ago when I knew that Tall Dark-haired Poet Lady and her husband were coming to this Small Maritime Town Nobody's Ever Heard Of on their vacation, I left notes for her here and there all over town. She arrived a week after I left, and found many of them still where they'd been shoved out of sight in public, though not in full view, though many were damp from the rain and fog which is plentiful here.
