Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly. I first started by publishing posts about weather vanes from the Nutfield area, but now I've been finding interesting and historical weathervanes from all over New Hampshire and New England. Sometimes my weathervanes have an interesting history, and sometimes they are just whimsical. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes outside of New England.
Today's weathervane is from South Carolina.
Do you know the location of weather vane #252? Scroll down to see the answer!
Today's weathervane was sent to me by a fellow genealogy blogger and Facebook friend, Carol Bowen Stevens from the "Reflections From the Fence" blog. She also wrote a great post about this location at Pawley's Island, South Carolina, available to read at this link: http://www.reflectionsfromthefence.blogspot.com/2015/11/pawleys-island-south-carolina-rolling.html Carol's blog is a wonderful combination of genealogy stories and her annual winter trips around the USA in her beloved fifth wheeler "Tana".
Pawley's Island is in Georgetown County, just south of Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Carol thought that this was private property along a marsh. The weathervane is a very detailed, three dimensional wading bird or crane. Can anyone identify this bird for us? The metal of this weather vane has turned into a nice blue-green patina over time. Very lovely!
Thanks, Carol, for sending me these terrific photos!
