Most of our seashore weather vanes are nautical or fishy. We even spotted a sperm whale vane on one of Ocean City’s summer homes.
Further along, across Corson’s Inlet bridge into Strathmere, we came upon a weather vane that is probably a fisherman’s weather vane. This vane is perched high on a tower and is definitely no-nonsense in appearance. Most likely, it is used daily by a seafaring man to see what direction the wind is blowing.
You can see it’s height in relation to the nearby houses.
Thanks to these bloggers for their response to last week’s challenge:
Exploring Color – It’s a Dog
The 59 Club – Fishing Forecast
Robert’s Snap Spot – Photo Challenge – Weather Vane
The Photo Challenge: Each Wednesday, I post a photograph of a Weather Vane with a short description of where it can be found and any history connected to it. The main focus of the challenge is the photo of the Weather Vane and the location. The challenge can be Wordless if that is what you choose. If you would like others to see your post leave a link to your blog in the comment box. You can also tag the post #weathervaneweds. If you place a link to my post in your post you will create a pingback that will appear in the comment section. The challenge is open all week for comments and posts. Thanks so much for taking part in my challenge.
