Photo Challenge – Weathervane Wednesday/Statues Galore!

On New Year’s Day we took a drive to the Delaware Bay and went through the town of Deerfield, New Jersey on the way home. Deerfield is a small country community, but it is home to a large antique store called Jantiques. Jantiques is three story warehouse and claims to have the widest selection of imported furniture and garden decor in the state.

We didn’t go into the warehouse this time, instead we took a few moments to just gaze at the oddities and life-size statues in the garden lot. Amazing! I was also able to spot two decent rooster weather vanes, although you have to study the photo to pick them out in the midst of the surrounding bric-a-brac.

Take a look at these entries in the last Weather Vane Wednesday Photo Challenge:

Photo Challenge – Village Weather Vane

My weather vanes this week are a bit of a departure from the normal. They are miniature and on my mantel atop one of the houses in my Christmas Village.

The village houses, shops, church and lighthouse were first displayed at my parent’s home. When they moved a few year’s ago they didn’t have enough room for all the Christmas decor and I was the lucky recipient of the village.

I love this photograph. It clearly shows the two weather vanes on the ironworks shop. This Christmas village brings me much joy every holiday. Thanks Mom!

Photo Challenge & Pheathers – Weather Vane Wednesday/The Hunt

Almost every week finds me searching for new weather vanes. Most times the hunt takes me to areas I know, but this past weekend, we drove to a town we rarely visit, Salem, New Jersey.  On the way we passed barns, silos, and many open fields. In one of those fields two large birds drew our eye. At first glance we thought they were vultures, but then noticed the eagle-like head. This is the first time I’ve been able to see and photograph juvenile bald eagles. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology it takes about five years for a young bird to attain its adult plumage.

I did find some good weather vanes on the drive. A cockerel is a commonplace weather vane, but this brass and copper rendition is far from common. I consider it a classic remade into something extraordinary.

Salem is an old town, established in the 1600’s. I had limited time to take photographs or explore the town. We visited the weekend the Christmas Parade was scheduled, and were hardly able to drive through the town at all. As we left the main street the police and firemen were beginning to  put up barriers for the parade.

I did take a photo of two of the weather vanes. This one was very large and looked to be a favorite perch of some starlings. I know I’ll make another trip to Salem soon and take a few more photos for the challenge.

Photo Challenge – Wednesday Weather Vane/Seashore Offerings Part II

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.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday through the Windshield

Before I go further than this first sentence, I must apologize for the quality of the photograph. The word ‘windshield’ works nicely with the alliteration in the title of the post, but the photograph is terrible. We have had so much rain in our area, and I was on a busy road with low visibility, and well..um…I weaseled out of getting a great shot, and just settled for whatever would show up through the windshield.

One reason for taking the photograph from inside the cozy car is a response from someone to my photography attempts in a previous week. I found a cute weather vane on a feeding stall in a field, with the sweetest little donkey nearby, and stopped my car to take a photo. “Get off the grass!” a belligerent shout broke into my enthusiastic endeavor, and I realized it was the owner of the field shouting at me for parking in front of the field. He was within his rights though; my right side tires were touching his grass. I waved in apology to him and hurriedly drove away half-expecting to be stopped by the police for trespassing. Now I am more careful of where I stop, or park; I don’t want to damage a well-maintained lawn. This photo was taken in Harrison Township, New Jersey. (The location is only half a block from the belligerent donkey owner.)

Take a look at these terrific weather vanes:

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Harmony

An eagle atop the Harmony Fire Company, Mullica Hill, NJ. The Harmony Fire Company was established in 1704.

A few more views of the Harmony Fire Company weather vane and station. I love those bright red doors. Eagles are one of the most popular weather vane subjects I find in my area.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Alcyon Lake Park

In Pitman, NJ, the town next door to mine, you will find Alcyon Lake Park. The stock car weather vane pays homage to the days when racing took place on the grounds.

“Alcyon Speedway
Alcyon Speedway was a 1/2 mile D shaped oval located on the west side of Pitman, New Jersey.
Historical Note:
The original track on the site was a 1/3 mile bicycle track which opened in 1895. It was expanded to 1/2 mile for horse racing around 1909-1910. Auto racing occured here in 1909, from 1919 to 1925, and from 1935 through 1942. After WWII, the track operated from May 30th 1946 through July 1960.”
~ North American Motorsports

The park is a terrific place to walk as it has a little bit of everything: woods, wildflower fields, and a beautiful lake on one side.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Route 322

Since June, I have found four predominant themes for weather vanes. In order, the most popular are: eagles, horses, sailboats and cockerels. Today’s challenge entry is another horse, but one quite superior to the normal flattened image I’ve found for other #WVD’s. I didn’t get close enough in person to decide if the horse is silver or spray-painted white, or perhaps even a bit of both, but it certainly is a great piece. It’s three dimensional and larger than the norm. It sits atop a pole at the front of a driveway.

The weather vane is along busy Route 322 near the town of Mullica Hill, New Jersey.

US Route 322 (US 322) is a 494 mi (795.0 km) long, east–west United States Highway, traversing Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The road is a spur of U.S. Route 22 and one of the original highways from 1926. A portion of it at one time was concurrent with the Lakes-to-Sea Highway.

Photo Challenge – Fore #2/Pitman Golf Club

Today’s Weather Vane Wednesday post is once again a golf theme. The weather vane is quite large in comparison to the first golf vane post. You can find this nattily-dressed golfer atop the Pitman Golf Club in Pitman, New Jersey.

A little closer…

The photo is a bit blurry since I zoomed in from afar, but you can see by the weathered surface the weather vane has been there quite awhile. I like his jaunty cap.

Photo Challenge – Jamaica


I am soon on my way home from Jamaica…unfortunately, I have found no weather vane to photograph. I also can only do rudimentary editing so I won’t be able to link back to last week’s participants until next Wednesday. Instead of a vane I’m showing a little weather as Hurricane Michael brushing by to the west of Jamaica stirs up the sky a bit. Weather Vane Wednesday will resume next week.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/With a Little Help From My Friends

Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.”
~ Girl Scout Campfire Song

One of our cousins from Reno, NV, visited last week and brought along a good friend. It was great to meet Jaye; I feel like I have a new friend in her. I had the pleasure of showing them a few of my favorite places, and along with my father, we drove around the Delaware Bay area and had lunch in Fortescue with hundreds of birds for company.

They also visited Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Amish Country while they were here and found this amazing weather vane for me. I’m sharing the photo for this week’s Weather Vane Wednesday. Thanks Myrna and Jaye, I had so much fun on our long drive around the Bay.

Thank you to The 59 Club for their CRABBY weather vane linked to last week’s challenge.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Come Sail With Me

We went fishing last weekend in Fortescue, New Jersey. I found this sailboat weathervane near one of the beaches.
Right around the corner I found another sailboat weather vane, a little worse for wear, the front sail had blown away in the winds off of the bay.
I had several good surprises on our fishing adventure. My husband had called ahead to Higbee’s Bait and Tackle and asked them to hold onto a surf fishing rod I had once admired there. The rod is an early birthday present.
It’s almost twice my size and WONDERFUL! I caught three fish with it. They were small, but one day I hope to post a BIG fish story here. I will share the second surprise later in the week…I’ll give you a hint, it has wings! Thanks to those who took part in last week’s #Weathervaneweds Challenge: ‘This Made Me Smile Today’ for the Buffalo Weather Vane. Also to ‘The 59 Club’ for Flight Training I also have The 59 Club’s permission to include their Weather Vane Video here:
Thanks so much to everyone who takes part in the Weather Vane Wednesday Challenge.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Labrador

I’ve noticed most weather vanes tend to be in resort areas, or depict a beloved animal or hobby. This week’s weather vane seems to be a Labrador of some type.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/When Pigs Fly!

Once again, I was driving when I found this week’s weather vane. A sweet pig perched on top of a cupola. Do you see his wings?

Here’s a close-up of him. This weathervane is brass and has great detail, right down to the curl of the piggy’s tail. I found this weathervane in the town of Mantua, New Jersey.

“The phrase “when pigs fly” (alternatively, “pigs might fly”) is an adynaton—a figure of speech so hyperbolic that it describes an impossibility. The implication of such a phrase is that the circumstances in question (the adynaton, and the circumstances to which the adynaton is being applied) will never occur. ~Wikipedia

Photo Challenges – Weather Vane Wednesday/Summer has Flown

Labor Day 2018 is now in the past, so is the summer season at the lake/pool we belonged to this year. What joy-filled times we have had there. We’ve celebrated a milestone birthday, swam with our grandchildren, reconnected to old friends, and best of all we’ve made some new friends and acquaintances. My husband and I are a bit sad that the hazy days of summer won’t return for nine months. It’s very fitting that this week’s Weather Vane Wednesday Challenge is located at the entrance to Lake Kandle in Washington Township, New Jersey. Even more fitting is the weathervane itself, a goose flying, which in my mind means birds flying south for the colder months.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/FORE!

Oh, the joy of an unexpected photo opportunity, and having your camera with you when you stumble upon it. The road was busy, speed limit 45 mph, and somehow a weather vane caught my eye as I drove by a home. It perched on the top of a backyard shed, depicting a golfer in mid-swing. Amazing! I drove a bit further down the road, turned off as soon as I had a chance, and back-tracked. I had my camera ready for a quick shot out the window. I was lucky again and no cars were behind me. I was able to stop, focus in, and take a decent photo for this week’s Weather Vane Wednesday. The location is somewhere betwixt and between Blackwood and Washington Township, New Jersey.

Many thanks to those who took part in the August 14th challenge. Take a look at their weather vane posts from last week:

A cute little squirrel and pine tree weather vane for this week’s challenge courtesy of a house in my hometown. I’m running out of weather vanes in my area. No problem! Sounds like the perfect reason for some interesting daytrips.  You wouldn’t know it from the photo, but we are in the midst of hot, hot, hot weather.

Thanks to these bloggers who took part in last week’s challenge. Please join our challenge, we’d love to see the weather vanes in your area. One tip: Not all weather vanes are on roofs!
