A Wind Vane With Wings - Kenwood, CA

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner CalBRE# 01433049

I'd like to think I know Sonoma County pretty well, but once in awhile I'll travel down a road I haven't been on for quite awhile and find something new. As I was traveling past the Kenwood Restaurant and Bar, something shiny caught my eye. I glanced over to the right to see a huge sculpture in the middle of a field.

I pulled over to take this photo, not realizing it was a wind vane. After I found my camera and stepped out of the car, the wind vane was slowly moving in the right direction for me to get a getter shot.

Just incredible!

That is pretty spectacular, Cynthia.  It must be new, because you wouldn't have missed this the last time you were there.

That is very unique, not your average everyday variety we see...

Is that a wind vane for a small airport, or something for horses to jump through?

It reminds me of the wings that kept Tom Hanks going in the movie Castaway.  Very cool!

Jane - this is a road I rarely travel, it just happened to be the easist way to get to a listing the other day.

Paul - not an average wind vane, no.

Glenn - We are big on sculptures here, and I'm just thinking this one was made into a wind vane to be different. This is sitting in a field next to a restaurant.

Barbara - that makes two of us!

Cindy - I couldn't think of what it reminded me of, you figured it out!

BLiz - serious is right ... I need to find out more about it.

That's fantastic!  How come you drive down the road and see so many neat things and all I ever see is trash and roadkill?  Think I need to find some better roads!
