Weekend Weathervanes: Row Row Row your Boat

Now I know what to do with those photos – “thanks” to Heather Wilkinson Rojo at Nutfield Genealogy; she blogs Weekly Wednesday Weathervanes  in New Hampshire.  Please check out her page and enjoy the many unusual weathervane photos and often you’ll be entertained with a history lesson. It’s amazing at what you can encounter in your travels – You Just Need To Look Up!

Weekend Weathervanes: Row Row Row your Boat


As we headed toward Stratford, CT., my husband said, “look up“… but of course I wasn’t prepared and I missed my shot. I had to wait until later in the day when we headed back over the bridge to get my shot of the little Row Row Row your Boat. I also found many weathervanes that day as we rode along the Stratford beach area, but I’ll save them for another day.


What I loved about this boat was how uniquely detailed it was from the little man sitting inside the boat and the oars he rowed. I could easily picture him rowing away from the marina, out for a morning row along the river. This weathervane is the perfect topper for Village Marina on Bridgeport Avenue; the border of Devon and Stratford, CT. and sitting right alongside the Housatonic River. Even though the locals call it the town of Devon, it’s actually a borough located inside the town of Milford.


Using Google maps, I located Village Marina (red check on house) located alongside the Housatonic River… just before the Stratford bridge.
