Weathervane Wednesday ~ Two boats by the sea


Every Wednesday for almost a year and half I've been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weathervanes. Today's weathervanes can be seen on the New Hampshire seacoast. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vanes #160 and #161? Scroll down to see the answer....







These two different boats were found on Ocean Boulevard in Rye, New Hampshire.  The first is a highly detailed lobster boat.  Even from the main road the tiny propeller and a mini lobster pot were visible, making it clear that this was a working fisherman's vessel, not a pleasure boat.   The second boat is a sailboat, complete with rigging and a fluttering banner from the top of the mast.  Both boats are three dimensional vanes atop private residences.
