Weathervane Wednesday ~ Child's Play

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 weather vane can be found somewhere on New Hampshire's seacoast.  Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weathervane #80?   Scroll down to see the answer....

Today's weather vane can be seen at Great Island Common in New Castle, New Hampshire.  This park is located at 301 Wentworth Road, and is open to the public.  There are 32 acres of park, and a beach with views of two light houses and the Isles of Shoals.  It is a lovely spot for a picnic or to play by the seaside.  I'm sure that the nice playground inspired this weathervane on the maintenance shed.  It was created by local artist Walter Liff, who also designed several other weather vanes around the seacoast region.

Walter Liff also created this whimsical sculpture

  1. Cute weathervanes! Nice sculpture! Some people know how to have fun in life. I wonder if NH is the only state that encourages this kind of wonderful whimsy?
