Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above a Bandstand

I post another in 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 vane was photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #333?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This weathervane was photographed in Sunapee, New Hampshire on the Ben Mere bandstand in the small park on the corner of Lake Avenue and Burkhaven Hill Road.  This goose weathervane is very appropriate since it is located one block from Lake Sunapee Harbor.  The bandstand has a great view of the harbor and lake.

There are summer concerts every Wednesday night at this bandstand from 7 to 9pm.   This bandstand is the site of the Ben Mere Inn, which stood here from the 1890s until 1967.   A committee of residents purchased the lot and donated the land to the town as a park.  The bandstand was built in 1987.
