Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/How Far Will You Go?

How far will you drive for a favorite food or snack? We’ve driven sixty miles, give or take a mile or two, to get our favorite Ocean City Boardwalk pizza at Manco and Manco’s. If you’re ever in the area check out this delicious pizza.

Ocean City is a good source to find both weather vanes and lightning rods. I’m wondering if weather vanes double as lightning rods on some of the three-story condos. I’ve found seashore towns to be the best source of many weather vanes in one place. The first vane is a heron, the second two dolphins. I’ve always loved dolphins; I grew up in the era of Flipper on television. I think this vane will be one of my top ten favorites.

Antique lightning rods and weather vanes are considered decorative collectibles.

Thanks so much to these bloggers for taking part in the last week’s challenge. Please take a look at their weather vanes:

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.

Many thanks to Cee, of Cee’s Photography, for including this challenge in her listing of WordPress Challenges. If you love challenges take a look at this page and while you are there check out some of Cee’s terrific posts. Thanks Cee!

      If it’s good it is SO worth the drive. This is the best pizza on the east coast…at least we think so. Judging by the crowd on Saturday, many other people think so too.

          Thanks Karen. It’s funny how they will suddenly appear to me now that I’m looking. I see a lot of interesting lightning rods too while I’m looking for the vanes. Maybe I should adapt the challenge to lightning rods too. It’s a thought to consider! Thanks again.

  2. I wish I could hold my hunger that long and be patient enough to drive 60 miles for a pizza. Would those pizza people make home deliveries, I wonder – are they allowed to bike 60 miles to deliver ?

    I love both those vanes. Can you share a picture of a lightning conductor ?

      I’m laughing Susie. I wish they made deliveries. When I turned fifty a decade or so ago for my birthday dinner I drove down and bought boxes of pizza for everyone. It was amazing then and still is now. Manco and Manco was once called Mac and Manco, and it has been on the Ocean City Boardwalk for decades. It’s amazing pizza! I think it might be the salt air.
