I drove to Walkers Point to see the Bush’s home. It is protected by guards, but you can pull off the roadway and look.

To be able to quickly visit the home of two of our Presidents was pretty amazing. History is always something to pay attention to. It is an easy drive with places to pull over and use your camera.

Of course the Bush compound is an attraction. Beautiful location for one of our nations first family's. A brief look was more than enough. It was right on our trip down the coast so worth a visit.

The Bush Family is beloved in Kennebunkport. It is a beautiful compound. The property has been a family retreat for more than a century. If you see the Texas flying, you know they are in residence.

We stopped here while on an East coast road trip with friends,the views are stunning and you can see the George Bush estate from a turn out on the side of the road...what a beautiful place. The views from the coastal drive are spectacular.

Fantastic seascape and obviously nice to see where 2 former Presidents' get to spend their leisure time enjoying the pleasures and beauty of Mother Nature! Parking can be difficult as it is very limited and the area is quite popular with tourists and tour buses!
