Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Sailboat

 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 in Derry, New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #59?

Today's weather vane was photographed on North Shore Road, across from Beaver Lake.  It is a beautiful three dimensional sailboat, with shiny brass or copper letters marking the points north, south, east and west. You have to look carefully for this weather vane, because it is mounted on the gable end of the house, not on top of a cupola.  This is a great weathervane for the shores of Beaver Lake, which has been a summer resort area for over 150 years!
