Signs along the way: coast to coast


On my recent trip to BC, I saw many incredible signs. Sadly, my first spotting of "We accept $US at par" (an ice cream shop in Tofino, BC) and "$8.50 bacon and eggs" (in small Calgary diner) were both so surprising that I did not get a picture. However, other cool (at least cool to me) signs made the list.


For everyone that has driven a K car, O'yeah: this is funny.


I can't believe I saw this, but I did ... gee whiz.

James: good to know. I will investigate the case in Halifax.

Any more sightings? Out there?

Oh, that K car... it'll find a good home someday... great photos - I'm pretty sure I remember noting a B&B on PEI every summer that had the often-optimistic '$US at par' sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.
