Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Big Fish

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 #365?  Scroll down to find the answer

This three dimensional fish weathervane is located on a small cupola above a small garage on private property, just before the entrance to Rye Harbor State Park in Rye, New Hampshire.  This weathervane is just a few dozen yards from the waterline, so the fish vane is very appropriate. 

Rye Harbor State Park is a very small piece of land by the entrance to Rye Harbor.  You can see water on three sides of the park, including a wonderful view of the Isles of Shoals.  There is a monument to the English explorer, John Smith, by the edge of the water.  It was erected recently in 2014, on the 400th anniversary of his "discovery" of New Hampshire.
