Weathervane Wednesday ~ In a New England Amusement Park

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes all across New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too! Today's weather vane is from Salem, New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #166? Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!




Today's weather vane, just like last week, was photographed at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire.  This two dimensional sperm whale was spotted in the section of the park known as "Ye Olde Boston", behind the "Yankee Whaler" ice cream shop.  No doubt, this weather vane was added, along with lots of other details (such as old Puritan stocks, a fake fishing wharf, and clapboard buildings) to make this lane seem like an old New England village.  

There are many whale shaped weather vanes around New England, and I have featured several of them here at the Weathervane Wednesday series.  The best place to view this weather vane is in the splash zone of the "Boston Tea Party" ride.  But watch out!  Don't get wet!
