Falls Village Connecticut?

Just finished the commission: "St. Peter's Thumbprint" photos will follow when the light allows, lots of mirroring on these fish. brownie points offered for anyone knowing what the title of this fish painting refers to.

on another note my feedjit shows a visit from Falls Village Connecticut. When I was a child my family had a summer home in Falls Village. our house was perched on a hill overlooking the YMCA and the General Store. The extended family would walk on summer afternoons across the bridge near the electric generating station up to the falls to the sluice and the pools below. sometimes my cousin richie would swim in the pools. us younger folk would dally in the errant streams.
