Weathervane Wednesday ~ A War Ship

Every Wednesday for more than 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 found somewhere on New Hampshire's seacoast. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #121? Scroll down to see the answer....

Today's weather vane can be seen on a waterfront building next to the gundalow at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.   It is a three dimensional war ship, and if you look closely you can even see the teeny tiny cannons pointed out of the portholes.  The ship is rigged, but has only one sail. This is an amazing weather vane for a historic location, which has a long maritime history.  A great choice!  It is hard to see this weather vane from Marcy Street, but is easy to spot if you are strolling through the park or along the waterfront.
