Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Fish by the Sea (Actually, Two 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 Maine.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #367?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Popham Chapel at Popham Beach, Maine

Now, look carefully at the house behind the chapel.  See the fish above the house?

These two weathervanes are located side by side in Popham Beach, Maine.  The chapel is right by the road, and the chapel house is set back behind the library next door.  Both are similar three dimensional fish weathervanes, with very slight variations.  The weathervane on the steeple of the chapel is much bigger.

Popham Chapel was built over 120 years ago.  It was renovated by the community after it fell into disrepair during the Great Depression years.  In 1988 the community also bought the house next door and turned it into the Popham Chapel House.  The Ladies of Popham Circle continue to raise funds for the upkeep of these buildings and community outreach.  Please see their website below.
