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 somewhere in New Hampshire.
Do you know the location of weather vane #232? Scroll down to see the answer!
We spotted this weathervane pulling out of the Fuller Gardens parking lot in Rye, New Hampshire. This three dimensional eagle is on the top of the house across the street. Rye has more weathervanes than any other town I've visited in New Hampshire. Perhaps it is because it on the ocean and is nice and windy most of the time, folks here like to put up weather vanes.
There are also many, many weathervanes missing their turning figures along the coastal roads of Rye. Perhaps they blew off in hurricanes or winter storms? Never to be found again or replaced? This homeowner is lucky to still have their majestic eagle.
