Pirates of the Carribean - Weathervane Wednesday

 Today's weathervane was photographed at Disneyland, Paris, France.

The wind didn't cooperate for this photo, but this is a two dimensional silhouette of a pirate weathervane located above the Pirates of the Carribean ride at Disneyland Paris.  The pirate is looking through a spyglass, and wears a bandana on his head. He stands above the waves, and over a large cupola. 

This ride is much darker than the same ride in the US parks, and includes bigger, wetter water drops!  I don't remember a weathervane above the ride in Florida (did I miss one?).  There were many, many more weathervanes at the Paris park than at the US parks.  One fun extra at this ride in Paris - a waterside restaurant inside the ride!  We had dinner at this restaurant, now renamed "Captain Jack's" after the character in the film inspired by this amusement park ride.
