11.17- Gaff-rigged weathervane

Weathervane near Smith's Creek.
But of course, you don't need a weathervane to know which way the wind blows... (apologies to Dylan)

Boats at anchor work just as well. (background - click image to enlarge)

The gaff-rigged sloop weathervane in today's photo is located along Smith's creek near Oriental.

You can order one just like it from Country Weathervanes.com

"The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails." -William Arthur Ward
