Weathervane Wednesday ~ Seen by the beach!

Every Wednesday for two years I've been posting photographs of weather vanes 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 weather vanes. Today's weather vane can be seen in along the New Hampshire coastline. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #113 and #114? Scroll down to see the answer....

Today's weather vanes were seen along Ocean Boulevard in Hampton, New Hampshire.  This is a coastal road that winds past summer cottages and vacation residences on the beachfront.  I noticed that there were many weather vanes here that were missing their figures and vanes, leaving only the four cardinal points behind.  I don't often see so many missing vanes, so I imagine some were lost in recent hurricanes and winter storms.

I loved seeing these fun weather vanes in Hampton.  Here are a nice big three dimensional whale and a two dimensional mermaid silhouette.  And the mermaid is even peering at herself in a mirror! Wonderful!
