This is part of an on-going series of photographs of weather vanes in the Nutfield, New Hampshire area (formerly Derry, Londonderry and parts of Hudson, Windham and Manchester). Some of the weather vanes are historical, some are whimsical, and all are interesting. Today's weather vane was photographed by a Londonderry reader, who saw this on the West Coast. You've probably seen this weather vane, even though it is very, very far from New Hampshire.
Do you know the location of weather vane #55?
Today's weather vane is located atop the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland at Anaheim, California. How many times have you been standing in line here and never noticed the weather vane? It might even be in one of your own family photos! One of the stories played out by the "ghosts" inside the Haunted Mansion is the tale of a wealthy sea captain and his unlucky bride. That must be why the weather vane is of a sailing ship.
