Kennebunkport, Maine

I have heard about the Bush home in Kennebunkport, Maine for what seems like decades!  Never, ever thought I'd get to see it in person.  Not tour it, it's still a home to the Bush family, but just to see it because I've heard so much about it over the years.

It's on a spit of land called Walker's Point.  (Look at that!  These crazy New Englanders even SCUBA dive here!)  Now, that spit of land is guarded by a fierce lookin' gate, and if I remember correctly, there's even a little bridge you would have to drive across before storming the gate.  

 Maybe no one else does, but the people of Kennebunkport loved George Herbert Walker Bush.  (Did you catch that the location is named Walker's Point - as in George Herbert WALKER Bush?)  

 "For our Friend and 41st President 
George H.W. Bush
An 'Anchor to Windward'
As he was for our nation and world during
four years of tumultuous and historic change,
so, too, has Kennebunkport served, in the
 words of St. Paul, "as an anchor of the soul, 
both sure and steadfast" to him.
presented by those who love him as much
as he loves this special place.
