I am always elated when I see something I have never seen before and today was such a day. Today, along with a group of about 10 participants, I was given the opportunity to tour one of the OCA weirs at Ossining, NY.

Friends Walk Leader Sara Kelsey sadly explained that it was a beautiful fountain that had not been turned on for many years.
