"Where the Ducks Walk on Fish"
On our way to western New York, we made a short stop near the border between Ohio and Pennsylvania. Pymatuning Lake sits on the border between the states. Located on the PA side is The Spillway built in 1934. This spillway is reported to be the second most popular attraction in the state after the Liberty Bell. I have some doubts about that, considering some of the great natural and historic sites in the state. It did seem to be busy while we were there.
The other claim I wondered about did prove to be true. When you visit the spillway, you will indeed see ducks (and Geese) walk on fish! Since we had read up on the place before going, we came prepared with some old bread to feed the fish and birds. If you come without, not to worry, they sell loafs for one dollar each. There were others also well prepared; in fact, some looked like they had brought enough bread to feed lots and lots of the critters.
It was indeed and interesting place and well worth the stop.
