You can see the flag flying at half mast on the lawn of the Bush home in Kennebunkport. It is quiet and serene. It was a privilege to sit overlooking the water on Walker Point and reflect on a great man.

This will not allow posting a link, but do a search on this site for excursions, etc. I would say mainly the beauty--beaches, etc. and FOOD! The food is to die for!
