Weathervane Wednesday ~ Over the Police Station

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 #371?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This three dimensional sailboat weathervane can be seen above the Wells, Maine police department building on Route 1.  This is near Wells Beach and many tourist destinations, and thousands of tourists drive by this everyday during the busy summer season. You may have driven right by this cute little weathervane without even noticing it!

I like this weathervane because of the details in the rigging and the little flag on top of the mast. I have no idea how old this weathervane may be, but it was constructed with a lot of attention to detail that is missing from new weathervanes.
