Weathervane Wednesday ~ Seen at the Beach

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.  This weathervane was photographed and sent in to me by a blog reader.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weather vane #303?  Scroll down to see the answer...

Again, reader and fellow genealogy blogger Sara Campbell has sent in another great weathervane photo.  Sara has a summer house in Eastham, Massachusetts (on Cape Cod).  She photographed this heron weathervane seen over the dunes from Campground Beach in Eastham.  This beach is on the bay side of Cape Cod, and is known for its warm, calm water compared to the beaches on the Atlantic side.  

Herons and other wading birds are popular weathervanes for beach houses.  I've seen quite a few in New Hampshire, and we only have 13 miles of coastline!
