Weathervane Wednesday ~ Thar She Blows!

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 Essex, Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weather vane #162? Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!

Today's weather vane was seen on the cupola above a barn on Lufkin Street in Essex, Massachusetts.  Essex was a wooden ship building community (and still is!) and is located next door to Gloucester, Massachusetts, which is even more famous for fishing and maritime occupations. The sea, the history of the region and perhaps someone's job as a whaler in the distant past make this weather vane a perfect fit for Essex.  This two dimensional weather vane was hard to spot through the trees, but well worth pulling over to take a few quick photographs.
