Weathervane Wednesday ~ Seen at a Highway Rest Area

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 New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #179? Scroll down to see the answer!

This is a photograph of the Hooksett Rest area on the northbound side of Route 93.  It was photographed at the end of September when the new liquor store and the shop just opened.  The Common Man restaurant is scheduled to be open sometime soon.  The weather vane shaped like the state of New Hampshire over the state liquor store was made by the Common Man founder Alex Ray.

This new rest area will feature New Hampshire themed exhibits, New Hampshire made products, and expanded visitor services.  The project is running about eight weeks ahead of schedule.  The southbound side of the highway will have identical services and will be completed after the northbound side.

The rest area on the southbound side of Rt. 93 has a similar weathervane
