Weathervane Wednesday ~ An Ice Cream Cone

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post every week.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.  Today a reader and fellow genealogy blogger sent in this weathervane!

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in Maine.

Do you know the location of weather vane #287?  Scroll down to see the answer...

Today's weathervane was sent in by June Stearns Butka, the author of the New England Roots blog.   This colorful ice cream weather vane is located on a cupola above Dunne's Ice Cream near the Nubble Light House in York, Maine.  I know that I've been to Nubble Light dozens of times, and I never noticed this weathervane.  I was probably too busy looking at the fantastic view of the lighthouse.

But this is a fantastic weathervane.  Colorful weathervanes are hard to find.  It's a charming bit of advertising art, and the weather vane is in an appropriate place here high above the waves on the coast.
