Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Fish by the Sea

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from just the Londonderry area (Nutfield), but now I've found interesting weathervanes from all across New England.  Some of the weathervanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers will send me some photos of very unique and unusual weathervanes from all across the United States and the rest of the world!  If you know an interesting or historical weathervane, please let me know.

Today's weather vane is from Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weather vane #234?  Scroll down to see the answer!

This weathervane was photographed at Juniper Cove, off Columbus Avenue in the Salem Willows area of Salem, Massachusetts.  It isn't located on top of a roof, cupola or barn, but at the end of a private boat dock.  This is an appropriate place for a fish, don't you think?

This three dimensional fish (anyone know what kind of fish?) has developed a nice patina over the years.  I couldn't get close enough to tell if it was copper or some other metal, because Juniper Cove is completely empty of water and full of deep mud at low tide.
