Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Whale of a Weathervane!

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 #386?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This two dimensional weathervane can be seen on the cupola above the Valero gas station on the corner of Ocean Boulevard and NH State Route 286 in Seabrook, New Hampshire.  The whale is a very appropriate choice for this location, just a few blocks from the beach and a short distance from the Blackwater River which forms Hampton Harbor.  From this parking lot you can see the sign for the Salisbury, Massachusetts town/state border.  Although this whale is small and you might miss it, the location has few trees and overhead wires.  The weathervane has a nice patina, and in the closeup view you can even see the features such as the whale's eye and mouth, as well as the tail.
