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 be entertained with a history lesson. It’s amazing at what you can encounter in your travels – You Just Need To Look Up!

The Lion Roared in Charlestown, Rhode Island

The Lion… but no tigers and bears

Sunday drives are always a great day for discoveries or maybe even a trip to Walt’s Roast Beef in you happen to end up in Rhode Island… and my eyes are always looking for a weathervane. As we headed out Rt. 1 North in Charlestown to stop at a flea market…. I saw a Lion, but no tigers or bears!

Shouldn’t a Lion be over maybe the Lion Supermarket or a restaurant… but this one was perched over a Spa… somehow it just didn’t seem to mesh with me at first.

I’m always wondering why and how some weather vanes were chosen for certain businesses when I discover them… often they’re inherited with the building, but it still just leaves you wondering… Why this one and what was the original business?

Once in a “blue moon”, you understand why a certain weathervane is there…. like a dog “vane” over a vet’s office, but a Lion over a spa?

But just maybe they’re saying… come into our spa, where you’re treated like a King!

    Yeah, why would a lion be over a Spa? A deep massage will make you roar? Interesting. Did you ever find out what the building’s original purpose was?
    Bet you will.
