If they were having a problem with people tossing in coins (like a fountain) and were being snarky, then total win.
Is tossing coins in a creek a tradition anywhere?
This could lead to the converse, in these times of financial freakiness. A coin-operated creek, like those coin-op binoculars at a scenic view. Put in a quarter and you get 15 minutes of creek flow. Or box it all off so you can’t see the creek. Enter the box, put in a quarter and a panel slides open so you can see the creek for 15 minutes. No telling how much money that would raise. I’m guessing at least a dollar or two.
I’m pretty sure that’s at the entrance to The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. When they first opened, people were treating the artificial creek as a wishing well. Since they use it to display native species, they worried that copper from the pennies (which is quite toxic to many animals and most plants) could be a problem. Hence the sign. As QD says, total win.
Nope, it’s at the Mendocino Coast Gardens in California. Trust me, I know – I’m the one who took the picture. ^_^ Not that they might not have a similar sign in Oregon.
This is hilarious. I love it.
So it only accepts bills then?
What about my welcome?
The legend is true! There are creeks who are not greedy! Free at last, free at last…
