Two Gloucester Weather Vanes

I have a couple of local weather vanes for this SkyWatch Friday. The first photo comes from a post Thursday, July 31, 2008. Since then, the Trinity Congregational Church steeple has been renovated and the weather vane has received a face lift. This is what it looked like last July.

Here is the cod weather vane as it looks today.

This the Town Hall weather vane with an American Crow. This is a spring shot, not a fall photo. This is the color of the leaves on this tree.

These are wonderful. Just graet. What is the purpose of the wire at the base of the vane?

Hi Hip Chick and Sylvia, Yes, we do get blue sky here in Gloucerster. Today is fog. I better get out there and do some shooting.

In this area, fish weather vanes on churches were very common. Not so today. This is one of two that I kow of.

Hi Guy, Rumor has it, it will be a nice weekend!

Thanks Roy.

Hi Syaa_Fiqq, Welcome to SMU. I see you have come in from Malaysia. Glad you stopped by, too.

:) These made me smile - especially the fish! Never seen a fish used as a weather vane! Well - not a boat either coming to think of it!

Great shots! The last is very nice, with those great bushes in front!

Nices vanes, I do like the shil sailing by in the sky, is it a dream boat?

A definite improvement on the Cod who was well in need of a buffing!

The black bird adds just the right touch to the 3rd photo.
