Weathervane Wednesday ~ Three weathervanes on top of one restaurant!

It's Weathervane Wednesday!

I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vanes are from a reader, and were photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #288?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Today's weather vanes were photographed at the Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond, New Hampshire by both Vincent and June Stearns Butka.   The Tuckaway is a restaurant and butcher shop located near Pawtuckaway State Park, and operating since 2012.  We often go shopping at the butchery, and I love the restaurant for three reasons - 1.)  Two for one lobster rolls on Mondays and Tuesdays!  2.)  The kitchen cam which offers live views of the goings on in the kitchen via a large screen TV inside the dining room (the barn in the photo above), and 3.)  The Trappist Brewery at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts bottles the beer served at the Tuckaway.  I grew up near this abbey, and we used to visit here for the jams and jellies prepared by the monks.  Now they are offering beer in the style of Trappist monasteries found all over Europe.  Good food and good drinks all in one spot in southern New Hampshire.

The weathervanes here are terrific three-dimensional sculptures of the food you will find in the butcher shop and restaurant -  a pig, a cow, and (of course) a giant lobster.  While you are there checking out the food and the weathervanes, don't miss the veggie and herb gardens out back.
