Weekend Weathervanes: Grandpa’s Going Hunting… Derby, CT.

Weekend Weathervanes

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!

Grandpa’s Going Hunting… Derby, CT.DSC_0224 FIX

This weathervane reminds me of my Granddaddy McKinley, who was a fox hunter. He would have been out hunting with his foxhounds, just like featured here on this weathervane. I always wonder about the weathervane that adorns someone’s home… is this homeowner a hunter?

 I discovered this weathervane on Sentinel Hill Road in Derby, CT. We were on our way to a tag sale… and that’s how many are discovered.
