    That's okay y'all, I've spent time with Uh-mericans in the past, I can translate. 

    Regarding the pretty coloured monopoly money, the big number in the corner of the bill is the denomination. Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, they're the same size as yours, just different people on the "heads" side. As for the $1 and $2 coins - one colour, one dollar; two colours, two dollars. We call them Loonies (the bird on the tails side was originally a loon) and twoonies. And there is no chocolate under the gold foil...

    This'll help:

    FYI, most places will take your green paper at par, but you'll get Canuck bucks for change. 

    Cheers, eh?
    Loonies and Twoonies Huh- where do they make those coins anyway, Daffy Ducks basement? Too bad aboot the no chocolate in the foil part tho. Anyhoo let us know if the rondy works out and we will be there. We're heading into the Gulf Isl. this summer anyway so lets have a cold one- one way or another.
    What i love about Canada-
    Me-Where should I tie off my boat?
    Hatbormaster- Where is it tied off now?
    Me-End of the dock.
    Harbormaster- Dya like it there?
    Me- Ya
    Harbormaster- Then I.d leave it there.

    Pretty laid back I'd say.

    There is a good pub steps away, fireworks on Saturday nights, Butchart Gardens is close by ( it's their fireworks), and there is a spa in the hotel for the ladies, a farmers market, local wineries, plus lots to see.  

    The marina is about an hour and a half sail from the bottom/south end of Salt Spring Island, close to a Gulf Islands getaway. See for more info on location. 

    No idea on costs yet, itinerary or raft-up ability...I'll leave this out here for a month or so and see what kind of interest there is.
